Teaching Pronunciation: Save Tonight (Word Stress)


I like this song so much  and it is  perfect to introduce word stress

Ask to your students to find two-syllable words from the lyrics , you can play the video two ot three times and figure out the stressed syllable in each of them

  1. Tonight
  2. Candlelight
  3. Curtain
  4. Bottle
  5. Away
  6. Delay
  7. Misery
  8. Tomorrow
  9. Desire
  10. GoodBye
  11. Darling

You can corroborate your answer by looking up the words in  the cambridge online dictionary
