Tier 3 Activity 1 – Use lyrics to respond to questions
Express emotion in response to questions
S3.1.4 Express emotion in response to questions
Hi and welcome to Unit 1 Tier 3 Activity 1. Please follow the button below for the next part of the activity.
This activity involves using tones to give emotional responses to questions.
Responding with emotion often involves changing the language you use but also the tone. In this we will try to change tones of our responses to express an emotion. Try to match the speakers tones below.
Why are you so shy?
Response – neutral
I’m only a little shy
Response – sad
No one sees me anyway
Response – excited
I’m not shy
Response – angry
I’m not shy, I’m angry
Tones in English can change meaning of a phrase. The examples above show some of the features. Note that sometimes the tone of a speaker will not match the words – this can indicate sarcasm or irony.
neutral – flat level tone
Sad – falling tone
Happy – high level tone
Angry – rising tone low to high with increase in volume or slow low tone
Excited – rising tone medium to high tone
Try the first verse and prechorus lines using different emotions in your tone.
