A video featuring an Australian educator, Jay, recently went viral, shedding light on the intricacies of emulating the distinct delivery of the ever-eloquent Mr. Shashi Tharoor in English.
One of the key aspects highlighted by Jay in the viral video is Mr. Shashi Tharoor’s masterful use of syllable emphasis. Tharoor’s captivating rhythm is attributed to his deliberate stress on individual syllables within phrases. As evidenced in the video, Tharoor’s eloquence shines through as he says, “So when it comes to pleasure, most youngsters nowadays prefer looking at a screen, their mobile phone or laptop, PlayStation or Nintendo.”
Jay astutely points out that Tharoor’s rhythmic flow is not just a result of his impeccable pronunciation but is significantly enhanced by his preference for syllable emphasis. This unique approach to language delivery has sparked an online conversation, with language enthusiasts discussing and appreciating the subtleties of Tharoor’s linguistic flair.

Despite the serious tone of the linguistic discussion, Mr. Shashi Tharoor himself found humor in the viral attention. His tweet on the matter received an overwhelming response, with users from various corners expressing their thoughts on Tharoor’s linguistic prowess. The Thiruvananthapuram MP’s nonchalant response added a touch of levity to the conversation, showcasing his down-to-earth demeanor even in the face of linguistic fame.
In the wake of Tharoor’s linguistic acclaim, a creative suggestion surfaced within the online discourse. A user proposed the idea of Mr. Tharoor launching his own coaching and course for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), aptly named the Shashi Tharoor English Speaking Course (STESC).
Shashi Tharoor, an accomplished Indian politician, author, and former international civil servant, is renowned for his articulate and refined use of the English language. Born on March 9, 1956, in London, Tharoor’s educational background includes degrees from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and the University of Delhi.

Sir you should start your own IELTS course.
STESC-> Shashi Tharoor English Speaking course.
IELTS and TOEFL is overrated.
STESC is the real deal.
