12 songs to practice the pronunciation of -ED endings - Luiz Otávio Barros As you know, the “-ed” endings of regular past tense verbs can be pronounced in three different ways: /t/, /d/ and /ɪd/, which is the one most students tend to overuse. Click here for an overview of the rules. Over the years, I have found that /t/ and /d/ are easier to notice and to produce if the verb comes immediately before a word beginning with a vowel sound: liked it – /laɪktɪt/dreamed of – /driːmdəv/ To help students get their tongues around the two sounds, I usually ask them to move /t/ and /d/ to the front of the vowel sound. This makes it obvious that there’s no room for /ɪ/: liked it – /laɪk tɪt/dreamed of – /driːm dəv/ Out of all the ideas and techniques I’ve used in class, this has probably been the most effective. So I decided to put together a 7-minute video containing 12 song excerpts you can use to help your students notice how /t/ and /d/ are linked to the vowel sounds that follow. By the way, if the video is out of synch, go back to the beginning and / or refresh the page.

Teaching speaking - Unit 3: Individual Sounds In the video, you will see John Kay and teachers giving suggestions and demonstrating activities on how to help students with difficult sounds in English.

The downloadable material asks you or your trainees to think about what special pronunciation problems your students have. The videos in this series express the view that “English language teaching has the same challenges the world over”, but that the solutions to these problems depend very much on the local context, and for this reason the approach taken focuses on tasks that enable the participants to relate the video to their own specific practice and experience.

Explore | English Language Training Solutions How Does It Work? The Color Vowel™ Chart represents the vowel sounds of North American English. Each color in the Color Vowel™ Chart represents a single vowel sound. Each sound has a color name (such as GREEN) and a key word (such as TEA). The corresponding vowel sound is featured in both words. Explore Our Interactive Chart While the Color Vowel™ Chart appears simply to depict individual vowel sounds, it does much more than that. Here, it is important to focus on a fundamental rule of spoken English: each word has exactly one primary stressed syllable, and at the nucleus of that syllable is a vowel sound. One-syllable words contain one vowel sound (even if a word contains more than one vowel letter). The Color Vowel™ Chart provides teachers and learners with an accessible shorthand for talking about spoken English. Here’s an example taken from the classroom: Student: How do you say this word? Student: [who has already been introduced to the Color Vowel Chart] Um,… white.
