This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
In Unit 13 methods of teaching pronunciation and phonology was introduced.
The first half of the unit focuses on Pronunciations, including Intonation, Stress (in syllables, words, or lack of), and Sound joining.
The second half of the unit focuses on Phonology, introducing linguistic topics such as the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and Articulation (place and manner).
Through this unit I have learned that pronunciation is an often neglected aspect of TEFL due to it being very abstract. I found intonation and sound joining to be very interesting concepts, as I have never experienced teaching them, and think it would be rather difficult but interesting for learners.
Phonology and IPA are linguistic aspects most native speakers of English were probably not aware of due to learning the language implicitly, but as teachers we should know about them.
