BBC Learning English | Pronunciation Tips Discussion Social networking can be too dangerous for young people and should only be available to adults. Examiner: So, now we’re going to have a short discussion. You’ve got one minute to take notes and prepare together for a two-minute discussion. Kelvin: So, shall I start first? Melissa: Sure. Kelvin: Yeah, so we need to discuss whether social networking can be dangerous for young people and whether they should be only available to adults. Melissa: I disagree with that statement because I think young people can keep contact with old or new friends on their social network and it can develop their good relationships and it can increase their self-esteem. Kelvin: Yeah, I see your points, but using social networking could be dangerous to young people because many of them don’t know how to keep their personal information safe, so some of my friends even put their mobile phone numbers on their Facebook, so I think criminals may use the information to commit some crime. Kelvin: That’s true, yes.

Introducing Pronunciation in a Continuous Enrolment Class | TEFL Jobs UK By Yolande Deane DELTA qualified EFL teacher with 5 years’ teaching experience If you are a teacher who is concerned about improving your students’ pronunciation, you may decide to do a series of lessons where you introduce the phonemic script over a few classes. However, when you teach in a school that has continuous enrolment, focusing on a particular teaching point over a period of time can be difficult, especially if students only stay for two weeks or so. Students are also often working in cafés, bars, and pubs and do irregular shifts, which in turn affects their attendance. An easy way for teachers to deal with this lack of continuity and raise students’ awareness of the phonemic script (without burdening them with the ‘weird symbols’), is to take advantage of the spare minutes in a lesson that may arise -after a natural lull in a classroom discussion or task- and use the new lexis learnt in the lesson as an entrée into the script.
