Eng­lish Speech Prac­tise Dia­log AUDIO LESSON- Elec­tric­i­ty Bill

It nev­er hurts to have dif­fer­ent prac­tise mate­r­i­al, so here is anoth­er dia­log you can use for your Eng­lish speech prac­tise.

The con­ver­sa­tion in this Eng­lish speech dia­log, is a phone con­ver­sa­tion and includes a female and male voice. Use the dia­log to prac­tise work­ing on your speech clar­i­ty, and don't for­get to prac­tise aloud and use link­ing and copy the Eng­lish phras­ing, rhythm and melody to help you sound flow­ing and smooth in Eng­lish.

Here are some exam­ples of  link­ing from the text below to help your Eng­lish Speech prac­tise

Link­ing is one of the ele­ments that helps your Eng­lish speech rhythm sound “Eng­lish,” and not chop­py or stac­ca­to.  See if you can find more exam­ples in the text than the ones I have writ­ten below, and don't for­get to use them as you prac­tise.

Remem­ber link­ing is: When a word ends in a con­so­nant, and the next word after it begins with a vow­el, you link them togeth­er, and they're said as if they become one longer word instead of two sep­a­rate words.

A. Well, as I explained to the first per­son I spoke with, I've just received my elec­tric­i­ty bill and it's twice as much as it usu­al­ly is, and I haven't made more calls than usu­al.

B. Let me just pull up some details. I ‘m sor­ry, for secu­ri­ty pur­pos­es I'll have to ask you some ques­tions. Could I please have your date of birth, address and cell phone num­ber?

Thanks for that. I can see your account details now. It says you made 5 very long inter­na­tion­al calls dur­ing peak charge time.

A. That doesn't sound right. I haven't made any inter­na­tion­al calls let alone 5 !
Where were the calls to?
B. 2 were to Den­mark, 1 to Malaysia, 1 to France and the longest was to Thai­land .

A. That's real­ly weird! I didn't make those calls and my phone has been with me all the time!

Ok. I will have to have a word with my daugh­ter! If I need to speak to you again do you have a direct num­ber I can call?

B. No. Sor­ry. But I'll leave exten­sive notes about what has hap­pened so that the next con­sul­tant can assist you if you need to con­tact us again regard­ing this issue.
Is there any­thing else I can assist you with today?

A. Thank you no. Not unless you can help me with way­ward phone users.
Thank you.
Bye.
