This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
This unit outlined the all the different pronunciation guides and the methods of teaching them. I personally have put together several charts of my own to help my students understand a lot of the basic techniques to make English pronunciation easier. For example one of my most useful charts is one that puts the voice and voiceless letters next to each other. Many students may understand how to pronounce and s, but because there is no Z sound in Korean, pronounce it as a J. My chart helps them realize that the Z is actually just an S sound with the voice applied to it. This has helped them quite a bit, but I was surprised to learn that there are even more defined factors in determining the type of sounds each letter makes. This includes both where the air passes through as well as what you use to stop the air or how you allow it to pass through your mouth or nose as you speak. Whether you use your teeth, teeth and lips, both lips, the front of your mouth(alveolar) and your tongue, etc. I think that this, along with some good charts of the head as provided as well as a demonstration and a comparison to their native language will really be beneficial in class in the future.
