Often when we learn new languages, we find it difficult to express emotion with our words, so sometimes our conversation comes across as a bit, well, boring. There are a few ways that we can overcome this. One way is to read, and focus on making the text more lively with your voice. Think of how a you would read in your own language. Another way is to experiment with how you say words. This could be something silly for you to do with your friends, or on your own if you feel to shy. Take a word, or a short phrase, and try different ways of saying it. For example, take the word ‘no’. Try saying it as a question, angrily, happily, sadly, annoyingly (like a little kid), confidently, shyly, etc. Then, the next time you are speaking English, think of the feeling you are trying to convey with your words.
