|1. Stress important information.
That usually happens in this order:
The store at the corner of Main St and 2nd Ave sells good tables. Their tables are made from quality wood. Many tables are crafted by local carpenters.
Notice: after the word "tables" becomes known information, the verbs are stressed and at last the adverb "many" is stressed. Once a noun is repeated or becomes a pronoun, other words gain stress.
Stress means changing your pitch or speaking a little louder or both.
2. Pause after the word you stress.
Let your listener fully hear what you just said. Silence is a powerful tool in speaking: use it.
