Fun Games and Activities for Pronunciation and Phonetics Classes at Universities.
Makarova, Veronica
Class activities and games designed to stimulate student interest and provide feedback in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESOL) pronunciation and phonetics are described. They are intended to address specific challenges of a typical Japanese, ESOL classroom--low student motivation and inadequate feedback--and to supplement conventional language drills. It is noted that most vocabulary teaching games (crosswords, mazes, "hangman," bingo) can be adapted for pronunciation practice. Examples offered include: (1) an articulatory jigsaw puzzle; (2) a dialect identification game; (3) a ball game; (4) dart game and contest; (5) flash card games; (6) use of local children's; and (7) party games, and some student-produced ideas such as stories and dialogues, tongue-twisters, and limericks.
