Teaching Pronunciation (9)

FOCUSING ON SELECTED SOUNDS

Do not teach the sounds of English individually. The sounds should be part of a meaningful word or phrase or sentence. Students generally pick up the sound system by listening to your model or voices on cassette, etc. However, the presentation of sounds in a carefully selected word or phrase or sentence will help you to direct the students’ learning process. And this will help you also to monitor their progress. By practicing words and phrases which contain the sounds to be learned, students are able to master the production and use of these sounds.

Introduce the sound. Focus students’ attention on the teaching point. Present a sentence or line/text which has the sound. Underline the sound in the text. Avoid complications of stress, intonations, etc. Include examples of the sound in all the positions.

I am searching for a job overseas in accent reduction services. I currently am doing my thesis on a prosodic approach to accent reduction using Daniel Stern's jump up step down approach.
Are you familiar with this?
