Improving your Speaking with Connected speech practice

Hello Listening and Speaking Writing Workshop Participants!

We have been looking at some examples of connected speech in the listening and speaking workshop. The example we saw is from Elemental English videos on Youtube. Watch them in order to improve your speaking and connected speech. We also saw videos on Richard’s site, Lingua Spectrum.

Rachel’s English is another great place to listen to learn how to speak well in English.

 

Please practice listening on this really great site for listening and practicing with accent reduction is

CEDPROM I ofrece este curso con dos enfoques:

2) aplicación de estrategias de aprendizaje activo.

El próximo curso inicia el 22 de agosto
Informes en CEDPROM 1 en Camelinas 3537 o llama 324 3137 o 443 102 4808 para más información. Todavía hay algunos lugares…cupo máximo 20.

One of the activities we will be doing in the TKT preparation course offered in CEDEPROM I, starting next August 22 is to observe different TEFL classes, on site or online, and determine the identifying characteristics that make each class follow a certain methodology. In the process, we have even found several different methodologies in classrooms that look just like yours.

In her post comparing a TEFL class online with her own suggestions, Adriana, a past TKT candidate, has shared a GREAT class that I recommend watching because it uses many motivational techniques that work. It is a task-based class, so the learning focus is centered on the students, not on the teacher, and involves the students on many levels.
