    Default The intonation of News Reporter is so weird to me

    Hi Everybody,

    What do you think the English Intonation of news reporter "Dennis Ho" in YouTube? I think it's so weird to me and compared to other news reporters, I think his English Intonation is quite different, I don't know if native speakers would have same thinking as me.

    It's awful. But perhaps Hong Kong viewers are used to it?
    Specifically, yes, his intonation is not typically English, even for news reporters, who do tend to have a somewhat artificial style. It's just as likely that he's having trouble with news-reading style rather than with his general English.
