Hey Everyone! ) I’m Anna and welcome to my channel. Here, I post some useful information for English learners. I’m from Ukraine and I’ve worked on my English and accent, for the most part, on my own, but you can find out and trace my story by watching my videos. I’ve been studying American pronunciation for a long time, and I still do, and I guess I always will – because it’s not math. Learning a language, it’s a lifetime journey. I know exactly what it takes to become fluent and acquire an accent in a non-English speaking country, and I’ve never even been to one. And I’m sharing this information here – on my channel.

Interpreter Breaks Down How Real-Time Translation Works | WIRED

Barry goes behind the scenes of his vocation, breaking down the many real-life scenarios he faces on a day-to-day basis. From simultaneous and consecutive interpretation to chuchotage and décalage, take a peek behind what it really takes to be a professional interpreter.

Barry Slaughter Olsen is the Professor of Translation and Interpretation at Middlebury Institute of International Studies.

NOTE: The techniques employed in this video are not all applicable to interpreting in a courtroom setting, where expectations regarding accuracy and completeness can be quite different.

Pro Acting Coach Breaks Down 13 Rage Scenes | Good & Bad Acting

Acting coach Keira Duffy critiques 13 of Hollywood's most famous — and infamous — rage fits. She reviews anger scenes ranging from great to mediocre to downright terrible, breaking down what went right and wrong in the actors' performances.

Some of movies' most memorable scenes feature actors getting mad — whether it's an action star like Arnold Schwarzenegger delivering his notorious choir boy quote in End of Days, the legendary Samuel L. Jackson giving his Ezekiel 25:17 speech in Pulp Fiction, or master of anger Jack Nicholson shouting down Tom Cruise in A Few Good Men. So, what separates the highs from the lows? With scenes featuring some of cinema's most famously angry characters, from Regina George's piercing scream in Mean Girls to Howard Beale's TV diatribe in Network, Duffy breaks down why certain performances of anger resonate with audiences while others fall flat.

Duffy deconstructs the greatness of Denzel Washington's King Kong speech from Training Day, traces the arc of emotion in Leonardo DiCaprio's rage fit from The Great Gatsby, and discusses went wrong in Sylvester Stallone's viral one-liner from the comic-book adaptation Judge Dredd. She analyzes Angela Bassett's celebrated monologue from Waiting to Exhale, and examines the improvised acting choices that make the scene feel so cathartic.

In addition to dramatic scenes, Duffy looks at comedic depictions of anger, from Kristen Wiig's bridal-shower rant in Bridesmaids to Nicolas Cage's airport tantrum in Honeymoon in Vegas, and talks about how comic actors use physicality to play anger for laughs. And in the courtroom scene from A Few Good Men, Duffy compares the righteous anger of Tom Cruise's young lawyer from the smug, defiant outrage of Jack Nicholson's colonel, and talks about how the actors escalate the scene right up to Nicholson's classic line, You can't handle the truth! Throughout the video, Duffy points out techniques that top-notch actors use to make their freakouts feel real and visceral on camera, as well as common mistakes that can make anger veer into ridiculousness — and in some cases, unintentional comedy.
