PRONUNCIATION EXERCISES

These are original English pronunciation exercises for English students based on a discovery learning approach.

These pronunciation exercises encourage student autonomy because they lead students to build their own criteria for how to produce English sounding sentences.

Sounding English is not just a question of pronouncing individual sounds correctly, much more important is to be able to control the rhythm and stress of what is said.

Having a feeling for English pronunciation not only helps students to be understood by other people, it also helps students to understand native speakers.
