Teaching tips - Teaching pronunciation Teaching Pronunciation Bridging the gap between the somewhat intimidating theoretical study of phonology offered in teacher-training courses and implementing techniques on how to teach pronunciation in your classroom, seems a daunting task. One glance at the phonetic alphabetic and a mouthful of unfamiliar terms like ?The labiodental fricative? and you are left with a class of panic- stricken faces glaring back at you! That mouthful of jargon ?labiodental fricative?, in laymen?s terms simply refers to the sounds of /f/ and /v/, formed by placing your top teeth on your lower lip and releasing air. The point is that many teachers find the study of phonology totally intimidating, and thus, not knowing how to implement it into their classrooms, simply shy away from it. So how can we achieve this task without having the fear factor from both teacher and student? Does teaching pronunciation have to be so complicated? The simple answer to this is ?No!? Teaching pronunciation in the foreign language classroom can be achieved through small, simple implementations while simultaneously bringing a lot of joy laughter and unity to your language learners. What is key here is simply being able to determine what it is that your learners need to know and how to make this knowledge accessible in the most practical and effective way. It?s All in The Mouth
