Why does intonation matter?
Understanding intonation is central to deciphering the true meaning behind a statement or question. Native speakers convey their emotions and attitudes using pitch variation and tone of voice.
Learning to control your intonation will help you express yourself more clearly in English, and ensure that people understand what you mean by how you sound.
As the saying goes: it's not what you say, it's how you say it.

Thank you so much Kim. My intonation is getting better. I feel so happy! I didn't know why native English speakers thought I was annoyed when I talked to them. My intonation has changed now. I feel so great with this improvement!
Thank you Kim, I've watched all 30 intonation videos, and I learned a lot, your own voice is a good way of learning.

I’m Kim, and I work with motivated English speakers who want to sound more natural so that they can achieve their personal, professional, and academic goals.
I know how important it is to feel confident when speaking another language. I speak Spanish fluently, but I sometimes worry what people will think about me when they notice I have an accent.
