Example 
In the sentence below the first 'do' is a weak form and the second is stressed.

Hello everybody! Nice to meet you here!

I am so glad having a great opportunity to build up my language skills in Business English. First of all, I really enjoy it. Secondly, I need it in order to work my way up the career ladder.

Dear Kirk, I faced some problems while doing online tasks. Would you please help me in solving them. Actually, there is no problem in tasks. I am just wondering, where I can find correct answers for Task 3, as I am not good with prepositions.

Thank you in advance.
