Importante: Pronunciación

Sirva esta página para remarcar que la pronunciación que aparece en los posts y materiales aquí subidos es una pronunciación “arreglada” (“apitxada” que le llamo yo en tono jocoso) para estudiantes españoles de inglés con necesidades formativas concretas que cumplir en un marco determinado de tiempo y por el que, por tanto, no se puede entrar en detalles de símbolos IPA. Soy de las que siempre abogo en mis clases de inglés general por dedicarle un tiempo a la pronunciación y a la interpretación de esos símbolos raros entre corchetes que hay en todo diccionario de inglés…A mis estudiantes les digo que ya no necesitan que les diga cómo se pronuncia determinado sonido porque a) si tienen diccionario en papel y quieren descifrar qué significa cada símbolo, sólo tienen que descargarse este genial archivo del British Council con los sonidos/símbolos IPA y porque b) diccionarios gratuitos online como www.answers.com y/o el www.m-w.com (Merriam Webster) incluyen al lado de cada palabra un audio con la pronunciación de la misma.

 

Dicho queda.

    Thanks a lot for your help, but I think it would have been very interesting and useful to have a pronunciation chart that shows the sounds of vowels and consonants in isolation, I’m a non native teacher of english and I ‘m sure my students would like the native sounds. I entered the British Council page but it was impossible to download the sounds. May be you cal help me with that. thanks a lot and I hope to hear from you soon.

    Dear Maria,
    Thanks a lot for your comment, sorry I haven’t replied b4 but I was away (Eurocall conference…and now I’m ill, I have a terrible cold). I don’t quite understand what you mean by a chart that shows the sounds of vowels and consonants in isolation…you mean the graphemes or the phonemes?

    I tried today and I could download the BBC chart without problems. Let me guide you, somehow: you go to http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/download/pron_chart/pron_chart.shtml, scroll down a little bit and you’ll find a line that says “Pronunciation chart>>1.6 MB exe”…click on it and the download process will start straightaway. If you download it to your desktop, you’ll find the exe there and every time you want to use it, just click twice on it and a chart will open up, just click on the sound and you’ll hear the way it’s pronounced.

    Here you have more activities on pronunciation.

    And here you’ll find 14 size classroom posters of phonemic symbols, with some examples.

    Thanks a lot again for visiting this site, you’re very welcome!

    Hi! I’m a teacher of English as a second language and I’m interested in looking for webpages in English with materials of audio and video to use with my students. It’s a bit difficult if the level is basic and students are adults.

    Thanks a lot for your attention!

    When someone writes an article he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it. Therefore that’s why this post is great. Thanks!|
