When learning a second language there are many aspects and features we must take into account, vocabulary, grammar, phonetics, spelling, functions, among many others. However, learners main aim is getting to speak and communicate their ideas in a fluent way, using appropriate pronunciation and getting to interact without difficulty with other speakers. Reaching that goal is not an easy undertaking but there are many tips and activities we can take into account in order to get our target.
On our next session we will use different activities and games that can help us to improve our skills on pronunciation, fluency and spontaneous speaking. Don’t miss this chance to escape from stress caused by final exams and actually get ready to enjoy speaking English without worrying about a grade but only having fun while learning and sharing with your partners activities such as tongue twisters, riddles, story-telling and more. These session is also intended to help you relax and prepare better for your speaking tests this week.
This is a tongue twister you can start practicing with (if you are not sure about the pronunciation, you can search a video or audio by typing Peter Piper on a search engine)
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Did Peter Piper pick a peck of pickled peppers?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?
If you know other tongue twisters and riddles in English, make sure you share them on May 18th with the rest of the participants and of course any other suggestion you may have for improving pronunciation and fluency is more than welcome. See you on Wednesday!
