1 Welcome to the sounds of listening!!! on Tue Jul 15, 2014 8:45 pm

Thank you Robert for setting up the Forum!!! This will a great opportunity to exchange ideas.

This is Gabriela from Ibaraki, where I am living since 1999. My first two and half years I spent in Okinawa and before that I was three years in South-Korea. I am a linguist on my way to uncharted areas.

FAB5 will be a great challenge for me, to go from the stage of attending and certificate eleve at FAB4 to a presenter. So I chose a topic, I really care for: sounds and listening. The sounds are a vital part of our linguistic ability, setting up meaning and making it exchangable (I am not sure, if this words exists, so let's create new words!)

So my first Maxime is: SOUND - EMOTION - MEANING are basicly related!
For a wider frame: Language - Emotion - Culture are unseparable.
That means, a coin has three sides!!! top - back and the in-between part!

Nice to meet you, and comments are welcome!
Does this sounds good?! Let's see!

It was great meeting you Gabriela. I learned so much from you as a person and through your presentation. I will be applying those pronunciation techniques in the classroom next semester to help liven up an already boring section in our textbook. Vielen Danke!
