Have you ever acted in play on stage. If it were up to me I would do add live first:; show me happy, show me sad, show me angry, now show disapointment. That would be fist exercise. Now lets do happy to sad. then sad to happy. now happy to angry. Now if you can’t do that you might as well forget about taking any acting lessons.
remembering lines anyone can learn. but, without the emotions you come out flat as a pancake. You can be taught were to stand. read clue card. Props helps, Stage left, stage right. Yes, acting in a play can be lots of fun. Knowing something about your charaters can help you do a better job.

When it have say the same thing your suppose to say it differently each time.
