In this unit, 13, I learned about teaching pronunciation and phonology. There were very helpful diagrams provided to explain how intonation works. This was followed by techniques for indicating and teaching intonation (e.g. by gesture, the board, humming or singing, nonsense words). I learned about phonetic symbols because previously I had not understood how they worked.This unit was comprehensive in terms of providing the names and the categories of various assessing and testing and for what. I did find the information on the various English test interesting. I am not as acquainted with the test in English. However, I do ponder, why would someone take an advancement English test? I will have to conduct some research to find my answers.
