Speak as clearly as an actor

Hi, there, folks. And welcome back to engvid .Today, we're going to be doing a lesson on articulation, the way we use our mouth toform words and sounds. We're also going to be looking at some tips to make sure you comeacross as a confident speaker of English in any interview kind of situation. Now, let's just imagine that you do have aninterview. Your heart's going to be going quot;boom, boom, boom, boom.quot; And suddenly, allyour English goes out the window, and you start making mistakes, and you can't reallytalk properly. So we need to make sure we're in our bodies, okayé And that we are presentand alive in the room. I've worked as an actor

for a few years, so I wanted to share a coupleof warm ups, a couple of starters that people do that actors dobefore they go on stage. So I know you can't see my feet, but we mightstart by making circles with our feet like this. So move them around, okayé Make thosejoints so you're doing this with your foot, and then with the other foot. So I want you toget off your chairs. I know you're watching me on the Internet. Get up off your chair.Let's all get involved and move your right foot around. And the other way. And now, docircles with your knees, circles with your knees. Good stuff. And now, with your waist,let's move our waist around. Move that waist

around in a nice big circle, and the otherway around. Great. Now, we're going to do some shoulder rolls. Yeah. We're making nice,big circles with your shoulders. And the other way. Great. Shake out our hands. I've got a penin it. Shake it out. Move our head around. Be careful with the head. We're going to docircles with our head, and when you get to the back, make sure your mouth is open. Do abig circle. And if you want to yawn, that's just a sign that you're relaxing. Okayé I'mgoing to move around like that. Great. Have a little shake out. Have a little shimmy,a little boogie. Great. We're good to go. Obviously, today, we're focusing on the tongue,the lips, and the mouth. So let's start by

blowing through our lips. Do it after me.So the pitch, it's going up and back down again. You try. Good. Now, I want you to imaginethat you're brushing your teeth with your tongue. Okay. You don't have a toothbrush. Youcan't find the toothbrush, so you're using your tongue. Okayé You're brushing all ofyour teeth with your tongue. Okay. Because to make clear sounds in English, you need yourtongue to work hard. Okayé And now, brush the bottom jaw. This is a jaw. Okay. We'regoing to brush the teeth in here. Great. And now, let's just, you know, make some funnyfaces at me. I'm making some funny faces at you. You make some funny faces at me. YeahéMove your face around. I know. It's a bit

weird. Obviously, when we're breathing, wewant to breathe from our stomachs. We don't want to talk up here. So try and think ofbreathing. Feel your tummy going in and out down here. Not up here. You might feel yourribs move. I want to see if you can breathe using your stomach. Okayé Now, we're going to look at some vocal exercises.quot;Pa ta ka pah.quot; Okay. So we're going to look at making sounds which are exercises for thedifferent sounds you make in English. And then, we're going to look at some actual articulationexercises for really clear speech.
