Students are given a set of cards with Spanish, French, and German words that are cognates with English words. Each card also includes the pronunciation. Students are given a worksheet that includes a list of the English words on which students write the Spanish, French, and German as they find them. Students are then asked to analyze the pronunciation of words from each language and identify pronunciation rules and patterns.
This is used in a 7th grade exploratory language course, but could easily be used in a level I language or English course.
