A Post-method Condition Pronunciation Teaching Approach in an EFL Classroom in Taiwan
Huang, Shu-Hsiu
Online Submission
"Wowo's Adventure," a story made up of 24 consonants and 17 vowels employs a culture-related and mnemonics-based pronunciation teaching approach with an aim of infusing it into Taiwanese pronunciation instruction to help resolve how pronunciation is taught in Taiwan. The first part of this paper introduces a story with the use of vivid description and pictorial representation of personified character of each consonant and vowel. The second part of this paper focuses on implementation of this approach for children. Close and detailed observation taking place in an EFL classroom in Taiwan is described. In the last part, a qualitative description from interviews of teacher (1) and students' (11) reaction to this approach is presented to show their positive attitude toward pronunciation as well as English teaching and learning. (Contains 5 figures.)
