Ever felt like this guy? Do your students often talk about whales, even though the topic of conversation is veils? Yes, we thought so, and sympathise entirely, which is why for this week’s lesson, we have prepared a lesson on pronouncing /w/ as in ‘window’.
In this lesson, as with our previous pronunciation lessons, students will read about the ways we pronounce this sound, look at some example words, and practise distinguishing /w/ from its easily confusable counterpart, the /v/ sound.
At the end of the lesson, there is a speaking activity where students need to hold a conversation using key language that contains the target sounds. Through this form of practice, we hope students will begin to sound more natural, and will be able to better understand native English speakers.
And finally, some of you may have seen a new course appear in your list of lessons. These are the second editions of English 5 and 6, containing updated listening, more challenging activities, and extra language and skills activities so that students can explore the topics of the lessons in even greater depth. We would really love to hear your thoughts on these new materials here in the community so that we can continue to make them as relevant and effective for your students as they can be.
Have fun teaching
