Why Sound Messages are Good for You
There are 4 reasons Sound Messages are good for you.
1) Sound Messages promotes civil conversations. It allows for mistakes in the appropriate use of the volume, tone, and speed of words spoken, but not continuous mis-uses of them .
2) Sound Messages encourages yelling when it is needed (ie yelling emphatically or cheering loudly) and stops it when yelling is not good or appropriate (ie yelling exasperatingly or meanfully).
3) Sound Messages teach English students how volume, tone, and speed send different messages. This is a huge help for E2L (English as a Second Language) learners whose first language is a tonal language (Mandarin Chinese, etc.).
4) Sound Messages are a method to monitor and control the volume, tone, and speed of the words you and I use when we talk.
