Lecture Extras / English Online Resources:Jazz Chants

As noted in class o couple of times over the last few weeks, one of the best ways to improve stress and rythms patterns in spoken English is to use Jazz Chants. [Jazz chants being poems that use jazz rhythms to illustrate the natural stress and intonation patterns of conversational American English] In addition, as Miles Craven in his article on Jazz Chnats has noted, because each jazz chant focuses on different vocabulary and grammar, you can also important words and structures!
