Teaching Pronunciation in the Learner-Centered Classroom.
Lin, Hsiang-Pao; And Others
Specific tools and techniques to help students of English as a Second Language overcome pronunciation problems are presented. The selection of problems addressed is based on the frequency and seriousness of errors that many native Chinese-speaking learners produce. Ways to resolve various problems (e.g., missing final consonants, misplaced stress in sentences, misused intonation patterns) are discussed in three ares of pronunciation: sounds; stress and rhythm; and intonation. Individual and class activities for correction of these errors, designed to meet students' different learning styles (auditory, visual, tactile, kinesthetic), are described. Contains 15 references.
