While speaking about sentence stress and learning the importance of intonation and tone today, ss had a great way of explaining what tone means. "It's body language for with your voice" - really creative!
A topic came up that was unexpected but we worked with it a little. Luciano said "I don't think I will ever improve my English. People always think that I am aggressive" This got a lot of people talking about their own insecurities with tone. How they don't want to come across too sharp but sometimes that's what happens. It was very insightful and led to an optional homework where ss can write about their insecurities and how they think people perceive them as a non-native English Speaker.
