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 we learned about English pronunciation, phonetics, and how to teach these principles to students. To be honest almost this entire unit was a learning experience for me. Having never taken a traditional language philology course the details and vernacular used to describe pronunciation and articulation was all new to me- but fascinating to learn. For example, the articulation terms like plosive- which is a concept that derives its name from the word \"explode\" because before making the sound the air in your mouth is blocked and proceeds to \"explode\" as you initiate pronunciation. Some most obvious examples of plosives are the /p/ sound and the /t/ sound. The two other terms that struck me were fricative and affricate- these are also manners of articulation. Fricatives are sounds produced when friction is created by air moving through a narrowing opening. Some common examples of fricatives are the /s/ and the /z/ pronunciation. Meanwhile affricates are the combination of a plosive followed by a fricative. An example of such articulation is the common \"ch\" pronunciation as in \"cherry\" or \"church\".
