      Sample lesson on {Pronunciations of Consonants} for test case scenario.

      4 Steps in Learning to Pronounce the Stops

      By Isaiah WonHo Yoo | 22 Aug 2013
      Resource Description: help students learn the six English oral stops, or plosives: /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, and /g/. I have used this lesson mostly with intermediate-level students, and it usually takes about 50 minutes to do the first three activities: Listening Discrimination, Controlled Activity, and Guided Activity. Teachers should decide how much time they want to spend on the last Communicative Activity, but should allow at least 30 minutes for the activity. A common mistake that I see in many ESL/EFL classes is that students are asked to engage in a communicative activity before they have a chance to do more manageable activities. The four activities shown in this lesson plan follow a format presented in “Teaching Pronunciation: A Reference for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages“ by Celce-Murcia, Brinton, and Goodwin (1996).
      Audience: Secondary
      Audience Language Proficiency: Intermediate
      Duration: 50 min/3x and 30+ min for last
      Language Skill: Speaking
      Materials and Technology: word list from lesson plan
      Objective(s): To help students aurally discern and orally produce the six oral stops, or plosives, in English: /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, and /g/

      Procedure:

      Descriptions of each consonant consist of reference to three features: voicing, place of articulation, and manner of articulation.
      The phonemes /p/ and /b/, for instance, differ in voicing (/p/ being voiceless and /b/ being voiced) while sharing the same place of articulation (bilabial) and manner of articulation (stop). There are six oral stops, or plosives, in English altogether: /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, and /g/. While we should not expect our students to know the three features associated with each consonant, explaining how consonants are different from one another does sometimes help students to produce the targeted sounds. For example, most of my students have found it helpful to know that the only difference between / (as in shoe) and / / (as in usual) is the voicing.

      I have used this lesson mostly with intermediate-level students, and it usually takes about 50 minutes to do the first three activities. Teachers should decide how much time they want to spend on the Communicative Activity, but should allow at least 30 minutes for the activity. A common mistake that I see in many ESL/EFL classes is that students are asked to engage in a communicative activity before they have a chance to do more manageable activities. The four activities shown below follow a format presented in Teaching Pronunciation by Celce-Murcia, Brinton, and Goodwin (1996, p. 36):

      1. listening discrimination,
      2. controlled practice, e.g. minimal pair sentences,
      3. guided practice, e.g. structured communication exercises such as cued dialogues, and
      4. communicative practice, e.g. less structured activities such as role plays.

        Hello Jeffrey Beltran,

        To pronounce the letter “v” you must place your bottom lip behind your top teeth, letting air pass in between. Here is a link to clarify https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD1nyXU8OwQ 🙂

        To greet people via message you can say Hello, Hi, or How are you?
