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.

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.

Quiz: Most Common Pronunciation Mistakes Heard in Class and How to Use this Quiz | Blog de Cristina I’m not going to lie to you and tell you this is one of those quick posts that you can throw together on a whim because it’s not. It has taken some time to gather all the data needed to create this quiz. Jotting down common mispronunciations is not something you do in a day. You need to be a patient person. With all the papers that clutter my desk while teaching, it has also helped tremendously to have a large post-it note on my desk where I could easily and quickly store all these mistakes I have been hearing repeatedly in class. I could easily tell my students to do this quiz at home as homework and I will probably do it. Procedure: Why a game and not just the quiz? Ideally, students will work in pairs.Give each student a card with A written on one side and B written on the other side. Follow -up: At the end of the class, do the exercise again. And here’s the quiz. Up to a little challenge?

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. This unit contains the following elements: A short video A downloadable series of reflection tasks and activities. 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.
