Pronunciation and Phonology in the EFL Classroom - Traditional Spellings to Phonemic Spellings Pt. 1


This video is part of our series on pronunciation and phonology in the EFL classroom and focuses on phonemic spellings. In order to convert our traditional spelling to the phonemic spellings, we need to identify each unit of sound or each phoneme within a word.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This unit was pretty straight forward. It gives me a clear and precise understanding of what is expected to be seen in the future lessons, I also have decided what I expect of myself as I am going through this course. I am looking forward to learn more about teaching young learners as I have previous experience working with them and they are my favorite age group.Generally speaking, the introductory unit content reflects an explanation/overview of the roles and responsibilities of teachers within the classroom, levels of student proficiency, reasons, interest or motivation that students may have for learning English (or a second language other than their native or natural language) and classification/levels of proficiency.
