Why You Should Take This Course
I don’t know how to teach pronunciation.
I’ve never really studied linguistics.
How can we make pronunciation fun?
Have you ever had these thoughts or questions?
Whether you’re a new, old or non-native teacher, do you lack the knowledge and confidence to teach pronunciation to your students?
Is it hard to make teaching pronunciation interesting for your students? Do you also want to feel more passionate about a seemingly boring subject and even jazz up your lessons for the other skills?
Do you feel like you’re not helping students with what they need most: speaking and listening to REAL English, not just robotic textbook speech?
Are you missing out on better or more exciting teaching positions because you’re not the kind of well-rounded teacher that students find extremely helpful with what they want badly: communication skills?
Do you worry that your training and experience aren’t enough to be the teacher you want to be because of this gap in your repertoire?
You’re not alone because I have also had the same challenges.
We don’t learn a lot about pronunciation and spoken English in our many hours of TESL courses or professional development.
But with the research and resources from this course, you can fill in that knowledge gap and develop a more impressive resume for future work opportunities.
And with my interactive materials, your students will start to sound clearer and more fluent.
You can become the versatile, passionate teacher who’s able to address your students’ most urgent need.
Take this Video Tour of the Course
I’ll teach you the 7 secrets of pronunciation for real English.
Take advantage of my course based on pedagogical research and learn about the following aspects of pronunciation:
- Word Stress
- Vowels & Consonants
- Feelings & Attitude
Maybe you’ve heard of these aspects of speech, but I bet your students don’t know all of them.
But each one is so important for speaking and understanding fast, casual English.
Collocations are also necessary to improve spoken English, so I discuss them as well.
I have 8 videos dedicated to each of these.
What You’ll Learn
- why it’s important to teach the 7 aspects
- a number of the rules and types
- strategies and activities to teach them
Don’t worry, the videos are not long and dry with just theory. They summarize important details in layman’s terms, and you’ll come away with many practical things to try.
What Educators Think About Miss Ruth’s English
Pronunciation is often superficially taught in prep courses; it’s complex and requires time. And speaking in general is the Cinderella of all skills, often neglected in the classroom. This course and the interactive lessons are what teachers and learners need.
