This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
So far Unit 13 ?Teaching Pronunciation & Phonology? has been the most difficult to grasp, and contained the most new information to retain. As a teacher you must overcome your own inhibitions toward understanding the complexity and be able to effectively and confidently teach pronunciation and phonology to the students. It takes just as much practice as a teacher as it does for the students. And although rarely included, time for pronunciation, stress and intonation should be given. Likewise understanding the rules, or rising/falling intonation will help students make sense of sentence patterns even if they don?t necessarily understand what is being said. It?s amazing how all the subtle nuances of intonation have subtext and can even act as predictors for content. Same goes for stress, being able to identify the subject of the stress will also help make more sense of the emotional motivation behind any claim, and allow students to change the meaning of any sentence such as the ?kicking dog? example. Getting to know the international phonemic alphabet could be very useful for TESOL instructors. The anatomical breakdown in the articulation section will also be helpful when prompted to demonstrate proper pronunciation. Peer diction, your own mouth and visuals are also good suggestions. Now all I need to do is figure out the phonemic chart.
