Pronunciation Lessons for Teachers of Classes of Adults of Mainly South East Asian Origin at Near-Beginning to Intermediate Levels of English as a Second Language.
Eriksen, Tove Anne
The lessons are intended for teenage and adult students. Focus is on placement of the tongue, jaw, lips, any movements involved, and whether the sound is whispered (voiced) or spoken (voiceless). Consonants are taught in pairs so students realize the distinctions necessary to avoid misunderstandings. Lessons include (1) final consonants, (2) plural markers and third person singular, (3) distinctions between /l/ and /r/, (4) production of /n/, /s/, /sh/, /zh/, /tsh/, /dzh/, /f/, /v/, /w/, voiceless /th/, voiced /th/, /st/, /str/, and (5) vowel overviews. Exercises focus on listening exercises, spelling, and repetition. (JK)
