#037 Differences between SHOUT, YELL and SCREAM


Hi everyone! I’m Georgiana, founder of SpeakEnglishPod.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.

  • Today, I’ll help you to learn the difference between the similar terms: shout, yell, and scream.
  • Later, you’ll practice these terms with a funny story told from 3 different grammar points of view.

As you can see, you can learn English in a fun and effective way only by listening! Please help me to spread the word by sharing it with your friends and family, or by writing a review on iTunes. That means a lot to me. Thanks.

Great! Let’s get started!

I’m perfectly aware that English can get very confusing because there are so many words with very similar meaning.

And very often, students have asked me about the difference between the words “scream,” “shout,” and “yell.

The level of intensity and the purpose escalates from shouting, to yelling, and lastly screaming.

Shout and yell are very similar, but if one shouts in anger, we often call that “yelling” rather than “shouting. “Additionally, in everyday conversation, the word shout is more common, and both words are less intense than screaming.

When you shout, you’re just raising your voice without any particular emotional aim.
For example, you may shout at someone that wouldn’t hear you otherwise.

“It’s too noisy in here!” she shouted.

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
