Sound expert Julian Treasure gives a fascinating, witty and revealing TED Talk in which he discusses ways we can communicate better. He not only talks about tone and pitch, but also the things we choose to talk about the words we use. There are two listening practice tests in this lesson and also note taking tasks. There are even voice exercises the students can do if they are confident enough. Furthermore, it is a great lesson for those who use English at work or in university. Advanced English language students are always fascinated by the nuances of the English language and this listening lesson gives them plenty to discuss and think about – it even gave me plenty to think about!
