This workshop will explore strategies for ESOL teachers to help students improve their pronunciation, decoding, and spelling of regular pattern English words. Participants will learn to: identify the six syllable types in English; differentiate voiced from unvoiced consonant sounds; discriminate all vowel sounds in English by tongue placement in the mouth, and explore classroom activities to help students improve pronunciation.
