International Catholic Migration Commission, Morong (Philippines).; Center for Applied Linguistics, Manila (Philippines). Southeast Asia Regional Service Center.
The manual for English pronunciation instruction is designed for use in intensive language courses for Southeast Asians learning English as a Second Language. An introductory section suggests classroom presentation and lesson planning techniques and gives background information on English phonology and pronunciation instruction. A variety of exercises are described, including presentation of minimal pairs, listening discrimination activities, naming of sounds, minimal sentence drills, repetition drills, context drills, a sound-spelling association game, student-generated word lists, a visual identification drill, and phrase and sentence drills. In this section, issues in error correction are also discussed. Nineteen classroom lessons follow, each focusing on a single phoneme contrast. Each lesson consists of a number of pronunciation exercises. Notes to the teacher at the beginning of each lesson point out phonological patterns specific to Vietnamese, Lao, and Khmer that may interfere with the learning of English pronunciation. (MSE)
