In Chantelleâ€™s thirteenth video diary entry she talks about unit 13 of her 120-hour online TEFL course. Unit 13 covers pronunciation and phonology. As Chantelle notes there is a lot of information presented in this unit including phonology, stress, articulation and the phonemic alphabet. The unit also looks at how to teach individual sounds and when we should teach pronunciation to our students.

The last couple of questions were very challenging. Transcription is something I struggled with in the past. Other than this part of the unit, the other parts were easier to understand. I learnt the difference between stress and intonation as well the various techniques that are linked to the two.This unit can be quite difficult for the teacher and students to understand. Specially the phrasal verbs, intransitive, transitive separable and transitive inseparable are very confusing. I think more examples should be provided to help to understand. The chart for model auxiliary verbs is useful.This unit is about Future Tense. I consider that it is full of basic information. For me this unit was too useful, because I forgot some usages of this tense. The structure of this unit is too comfortable for studying. Of course, it is too nice that there are an examples of typical students error.
