Who It’s For: High-Beginning to Intermediate Developers of Oral-Language Skills Managing Medial & Final Consonant Sounds while Talking About People’s Activities
Why It’s Useful: Expanding on E-03.04 Part Three-8 of Beginners’ Before Speaking with Pronunciation Principles, these Pronunciation Practice sections compare most of the same consonants as those that begin words—with the additions of -ng and -x. The formats of their explanations and exercises mirror those in E-03.02, Part Three-7 of Pronunciation Practice (Before Speaking). Organized by Medial & Final Consonant Sounds, there are groups of (sometimes confused) words to repeat or read aloud; funny phrases and silly-sounding sentences to pronounce; sentences for which to choose between contrasting words; words to complete by filling in letters for specified sounds; and word-generating games. Checking relevant responses to those of a Pronunciation Practice (PrPr) Answer Key might enhance instruction.
