This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:

Unit 13 focused on how to teach pronunciation and phonology. We saw that intonation has three patterns (rise/fall, fall/rise, and flat) and is concerned with the whole sentence versus stress which focuses on individual words and/or syllables. We also saw the advantages of using the International Phonetic Alphabet in class as a tool to focus on the pronunciation rather than the spelling thus possibly helping the students hear the individual sounds in a word. It was helpful to see how such a seemingly difficult concept can be integrated into and become a positive addition to the class. The unit went in-depth as to where in the mouth and how the sounds are formed. For example the f and v are labio-dental meaning that they are formed by touching the top teeth to the lower lip. The sounds can also be voiced or unvoiced depending on the presence or not of vibration in the vocal cords.
