I've completed the majority of my pre-interview tasks and feel pretty confident about it bar one question which I can't seem to tackle. I don't want anyone to do this full question for me, just perhaps show me the first bit as an example and I'm sure I'll be on my way. I'm certain I'm ignoring the glaring obvious here.
Say each of the following sentences with the strongest emphasis on the underlined word. For each sentence write what you think might have been said before it to prompt that particular stress.
a)The Rolling Stones were a great band
b)The Rolling Stones were a great band
c)The Rolling Stones were a great band
d)I like her new car (Maybe she's got more things that are new. I love Sarah's new dress)
e)I like her new car ( She might have an old one. I love Sarah's old Toyota)
f)I like her new car (Not any other car but hers. Sarah's boyfriend has bought an Audi A4)
I love this sort of questions, they're challenging. These are my suggestions, I hope I'm not totally wrong.
Good luck with your interview!
