Enrol in a Phonetic Program and Learn the Nuances of English

Phonetics is a branch of linguistics that comprises the the study of the sounds of human speech, the study of the actual sounds that make up the words of a language. It is the scientific study of speech. Every language has their own characteristics which definitely vary from one another. English has only 26 letters of the alphabets; however it has around 44 pronunciations. Therefore, it is quite a difficult task for a newbie, who is new to the language, to know what pronunciation to use for an alphabet as they can be used differently for different words. The spellings in English are not phonetic and are often quite inconsistent. For instance busy, chair, choir, core, phone, fan, kitchen, know, elephant, etc. belong different words yet are quite confusing to pronounce. Conversation English has very little to do with writing English. Hence, in order to be able to pronounce words correctly, proper trainers and teachers are needed.


Phonetics is more about the physical properties of the speech sound, of the ways that we make speech. In English there are over 11 vowels and 3 dipthongs which contribute to the speaking of the language. Phonetics is a way of better English pronunciation and not just English pronunciation and also for better spoken English understanding. Knowing correct English while speaking and writing is of utmost importance in a world where English has become the preferred language of global communication. Each country has their own native language which has led to a lot of complications and problems among the people while communicating with each other. Hence English has become the universal language for global communication. In order to know word-perfect English, having a fair idea of phonetics is quite an important part for anyone aspiring to learn and use proper English words. Hence if you are looking to become a teacher of ESL (English as a Secondary Language) or EFL (English as Foreign Language) or if you are a professional teacher who  want to upgrade their knowledge and teaching skills on phonetics and expand their market value, taking up a professional course on the same will be highly commendable.
However only knowledge of the language is not everything, one has to be able to use it in a correct manner. Phonetics is learnt to know the accurate and fluent use of the language, while communicating in it, that is, listening, speaking, reading and writing. Henry Sweet regarded Phonetics as “the indispensable foundation to all study of language.”
Learners of English dream to have native like pronunciation and to do so a thorough knowledge of the phonetics sound system is a mandate.Modern day phonetic classes involve learning and acquiring the correct pronunciation by imitation of the tutor. It must be noted that in the English language, some letters have more than one sound; sometimes letters are ‘silent’ and not pronounced at all; and same sound may be denoted by altered letters. Learners should know the main reason behind a pronunciation of a specific word in a ‘foreign language’ like English. Nevertheless, being able to correctly pronounce the word needs regular practice and ear training exercise.
By enrolling in the class the candidate will be able to get a good grasp of the letters to stress in a word, which letters to avoid pronouncing, how to use the tongue and the palette, and many more. The course is generally a 40 hour online course, which has the advantage of pursuing it from any corner of the world. It is a comprehensive course which is designed for primary education teachers who deal with small children on a daily basis and has the responsibility of teaching phonetically correct words to them so that they are able to use the language just like the native speakers of English.

Tricks and Tips to Teach English Quickly

A lot of non-native people who want to learn English think they need to be acquainted with a lot of grammatical rules, vocabulary and so on before they can start communicating. Other people are scared stiff of making mistakes and as a result avoid speaking. As a TEFL teacher you need to know why making mistakes is in fact a good thing and how you can sky rocket the learning process of the non native learners. A few fundamental tricks can ease the complete practice and even make learning English language fun. No matter what is your reason to teach this new language, the act itself can be demanding for many fresh EFL/ESL teachers. Teaching something new requires a lot of hard work, patience and practice.


Commitment plays a major role while teaching TEFL. It is important that you give your full concentration and commitment to your new agenda of teaching EFL/ESL to the non natives. Along with training in TEFL teaching you need to have a strong reason and stay passionate - this is the mantra to teach EFL/ESL. As a first day agenda of teaching TEFL you can start with the most common words. List out 50 or 100 most frequently used words in the English language. Now ask you non native learners try and frame different sentences around these words. This helps them in picking up appropriate words, phrases and sentences as well as faster and overall language learning. Remember the more you make your learners practise, the more they thin in English. The fake conversations in your TEFL classroom will make the learners better equipped to talk about them in real time scenarios.

 
Learners only get involved in the class when they feel interested and the key to this is having fun in class. To teach the new language quickly it is important to enjoy the process. Do not just make the learning a class room exercise, give it a personal touch and make the experience enjoyable. Having fun at the same time as learning TEFL can make the entire exercise seem less monotonous and rigorous. You can perform a play in English language and encourage the learners for participation. There are also a variety of apps and technologies which allow you to create a better understanding. You can also ask your students have an access to a pocket dictionary to help them out in sticky situations. Take audio and video aids in classes, teach through flash cards, play quiz in class - they are great tools for teaching basics of TEFL. One of the basic differences between the languages is the structure.  All your teaching tools will be ineffective if you do not make the non native learners practise daily. Imbibe it in your daily class room activities and it’s only when you can submerge your learners in the world of the new language that it becomes as easy as your native language. As a TEFL teacher you need to know that in every case a positive attitude helps win half the battle. During your teaching process you are bound to face adverse situation but you only need to instil the courage in the non natives and take everything in stride.
