ACTIVITY: INTONATION! <ul><li>When we communicate, we use words, body language, and intonation. </li></ul><ul><li>What do you think is most important? </li></ul><ul><li>The teacher will say the same sentence with different intonation. </li></ul><ul><li>How does the meaning of the sentence change? </li></ul><ul><li>Why is it so important to use intonation? </li></ul>
  11. 11. INTONATION! <ul><li>Listen to the speakers and then choose the answer that best describes the feeling in the recording. </li></ul><ul><li>The teacher will assign two students who write the conversation down, and later read it to the class. </li></ul><ul><li>How well did they use intonation? </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.englishmedialab.com/pronunciation/upper-intermediate%20intonation%20exercise.htm </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that that if intonation is lacking, the speaker might seem uninterested and could be considered rude by native speakers. </li></ul>
  12. 12. CONCLUSION <ul><li>It is important to teach pronunciation so we can be understood by native or second language speakers, and we are able to understand them. </li></ul><ul><li>Using technology is an excellent way to teach pronunciation because there is a great variety of online exercises on the different aspects of pronunciation, and our students can become familiar with different accents being exposed to them on the internet. </li></ul><ul><li>It makes learners more secure in their speaking, and reduces the fear of not understanding different accents. </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching pronunciation using online exercises can be a very successful and fun way to improve your students’ pronunciation! </li></ul>
