A Global Guide to Tricky Pronunciation English pronunciation is a troublesome thing to master for ESL and EFL students. Those who try to learn without regular auditive stimulation have a particularly difficult time with accurate pronunciation. Plus, some sounds in English just don’t exist in some foreign languages, like the “th” sound. Pronunciation snags happen between many languages. For example, Portuguese-speakers do not understand the sound of “j” that many Spanish-speakers use for the consonant “y.” Most Japanese and Chinese speakers have a hard time with the sound of “ell” coming from any other language, and often confuse it with “ar.” English sometimes can seem dedicated to making it even harder for learners with some phonetic oddities, like the words: ‘tough’ [túf]; ‘women’ [wû-mun]; ‘aisle’ (And going back to the “h” issue, the letter has no sound in English in the words ‘heir’ [ehr], ‘hour’ [our] and ‘herb’ [urb], just like in Portuguese).

Yupeek, le "fouineur" de jeunes talents Je vais vous parler aujourd’hui d’un petit nouveau dans la galaxie des Réseaux sociaux ! Encore un me direz-vous ? Oui, mais celui-ci a toutes les chances d’être un véritable succès ! Pourquoi ? Tout simplement parce que ce projet porté par une bande de copains fraîchement diplômés de l’ICN Business School, est très bien pensé et répond à une double attente, celle des Entreprises, grandes et petites, et celles des étudiants et jeunes diplômés ! Ma rencontre avec Yupeek Le 17 mai dernier, je suis intervenu dans le cadre d’une Table ronde sur l’e-Réputation et les Réseaux sociaux à l’ICN Business Shool à Nancy. Avant de commencer la Table ronde, certains étudiants nous ont indiqué qu’ils ne nous entendaient pas très bien sans micro. Ces 4 copains ont également par la suite activement participé au débat. Et pour cause, il s’agissait des 4 membres de l’Equipe Yupeek ! J’ai donc rencontré hier Tarek MOUTAWAKKIL et Jean-Baptiste JANIN à Strasbourg. Comment est né Yupeek ? L’Equipe Yupeek 1. 2.

RESEAUX APPRENANTS The Idea of Collective Leadership Presented by Dr. Mari Pearlman, with guest Dr. Susan VanZantSponsored by NASSP For the final webinar in the Learner-Centered Leadership 2011 series, we presented an interview with Dr. Susan VanZant, an award-winning California principal and school leadership consultant. Data-driven decision-making is her speciality, and she knows first-hand all of the challenges of moving a school or district to a new way to thinking and acting. School leaders must create the vision and foster the interactions among students, teachers, and staff members that lead to changes in performance and attitude.

The Learner-Centered School Leadership PLC is a unique and collaborative way for school leaders across the country to work together to explore this important topic. About the Presenter Dr.

Reading, Writing and New Media Literacies 11.15.11 | Writing at DMLcentral, John Jones argues that teaching students how to write a traditional five-paragraph essay no longer serves a real-world purpose—it’s not a valued skill outside of writing classes. An emphasis should instead be placed on 21st-century literacies, such as writing and publishing information in public spaces: Publishing is a word that for many evokes images of enormous printing presses or the approval of gatekeepers like editors and publishing houses. But in the network society, the publishing process is less guarded, for one can simply post items to the web where others can see them, and comment on or enter into conversations about them. Yet this simplicity masks a complexity: just because it is easy to share our writing on digital networks, that does not mean that the skills necessary to write successfully in different online environments are themselves easily mastered. So how do we define today’s necessary literacies?
