Teaching speaking - Unit 3: Individual Sounds
The interactive and downloadable material asks you or your trainees to think about what special pronunciation problems your students have. You will need to match the techniques presented on the programme to specific pronunciation problems. You will also have the opportunity to try out an activity based on the phonemic chart as well as other classroom activities.
The videos in this series express the view that “English language teaching has the same challenges the world over”, but that the solutions to these problems depend very much on the local context, and for this reason the approach taken focuses on tasks that enable the participants to relate the video to their own specific practice and experience.
Watch the video below. It shows Montakarn, Pathumporn, Sumalee and Supote talking about some of the techniques and strategies they use to help their students with pronunciation of individual problem sounds.
Task 1: Sounds challenge. This task asks you to decide which of the techniques or strategies mentioned in the video would be best for dealing with specific problems.
Task 2: Grouping words by vowel sound. This task focuses on grouping words based on how the vowel 'o' sounds in each one.
