EFL / ESL Pronunciation exercises
These are original English pronunciation exercises for English students based on a discovery learning approach called the Silent Way.
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.
