The next fundamental skill we will train is “Phonological Awareness.” This refers to your ability to break speech down into its component parts. The better your phonological awareness, the easier time you will have hearing, mimicking, and remembering new words and expressions in your target language. In the first video, I introduce the idea of left-brain parts-perception versus right-brain whole-perception, and discuss its relevance to our language learning project. Then in the second video, I walk you through a visualization of the layers of speech. After watching each video, share your biggest insights and takeaways in the
#completionschannel for credit.
The the first layer of speech we are going to explore is the melodic layer, which is modulated by our larynx. In this layer, we refer to the sub-component parts as “Notes”. Click below to learn more.
