How to Pronounce 'CAPARISON' - English Pronunciation


In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word caparison. This word refers to decking something out in rich decorative coverings, usually used for horses. This word found its way into the English language through the French word caparasson who took it from the Spanish caparazón meaining ‘saddlecloth'.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This section covered the various past tenses in the English language. I think that it was done quite well. Very clear and concise. The examples that were given were very relevant and gave good evidence of how the conjugation works. There wasn't a lot that I learned from this section.Although I have learnt these rules in the past and I like the subject a lot, many concepts have been certainly refreshed. As native speakers we have internalized rules for the use the language, and this unit analyses and explains the logics of those rules in a very didactive manner.In this unit I have looked at evaluation and testing. I have learnt about tutorials, the way in which evaluation may be made by the students and many different types of tests. I have looked at how each individual test may be taken for specific outcomes and their purpose in doing so.
