Unit 13 talks about teaching pronunciation and phonology. I have learned that phonetic scripts are how we actually say the word. It's a good way to teach kids how to decode different words. I have also learned about voice and unvoiced words. Unvoiced is just the movement of the air with no vibrations,which I have also thought that every letter gave off vibrations.The difference between the two lessons really highlights the importance of the teachers roll and how you as a teacher are a very important multifaceted tool to use. Eg The use of your body language, your voice, by showing engagement, showing that you are interested in your students, by being encouraging and friendly. It was really hard to watch the first lesson.
