In this episode, shadow a scene with me by the Cuban actress, Ana de Armas! Not only is Ana an incredible actress, but she’s also a great example of how to use voice, humor, and intonation to make an audience laugh – and she does that in her second language.

Ana’s story of learning English is an inspiration, she didn’t learn English until she came to the US, at 26 years old!

I hope you will see this as a true example of what is possible in a second language, as we’ll practice Ana’s speech and see how she uses her voice to deliver lines that are both funny, charming, and inspiring.
