The first of twelve in the Beginners section of the Learn English Now course, this lesson teaches Phonetics and everyday Greetings. As English is not pronounced the way that it is written, this lesson is of great importance. It gives basic pronunciation right from the start.
This first lesson should be given to the students as a printout, so that they may copy the Phonetic Symbols and practise them. The students then learn by listening and repeating, whilst their pronunciation is monitored and corrected. So simple to use, no graphics, no games, no preparation.
These lessons can be used one-on-one, or with a class of students. Each lesson is 4 pages long, (plus exercises) ideal for one hour, and has an answer key at the end. A lot of the course is given in question and answer format so that the students can learn how to form questions correctly in English. New vocabulary is written in both English and phonetics. Additional lessons will be available using Dictonetics™ and Comprehension.
