Do you teach pronunciation? I do. That’s all I’ve been doing for the past 9 years. I’ve finally figured out the very best ways to teach it so students actually make permanent improvements to their sound in English. Now I’m sharing it all with you.
I’m excited to announce the launch of TESOL Pronunciation Teacher Course–Vowels: The Core of the English Sound, an 18-lecture Udemy course.
What’s in the course course
“Vowels: The Core of the English Sound” takes you on a deeper look into how to teach the sounds of English. This is not a worksheet course, though. It’s a course with demonstrations. You’ll see just how to teach so that students can actually make a change in their sound. It also offers the tools and systems I use to teach pronunciation teaching and accent reduction to students of all levels. In the end you get my entire vowel-teaching system–I’ve honed it down over the years to exactly what I need and nothing extra. It’s exactly what I use to teach English vowels to all levels of students, from beginning students first learning the sounds of English, to very advanced English speakers working on accent reduction.
Challenges that students face
One of the biggest problems for students is switching from the sounds of their first language to English sounds. If they don’t make the change, they have an accent, which sometimes, unfortunately, makes them difficult to understand. But our students can’t make the change on their own. The sounds of our first language are not conscious to us. We have heard these sounds since before we were born, and changing our speech sounds requires intensive practice with physical changes. Pronunciation is a verb, after all! What I mean is that speaking is a physical action, a habitual unconscious action. The solution must be physical re-training and must bring the unconscious into consciousness. This method is based on current research and science, yet it’s very simple and intuitive to use.
