Ms. Pronunciation will teach you to stretch, blend, sound and store using
creativity, memory devices and founded methods to give you 4 wings like a dragonfly to flap less and learn more.
Ms. Pronunciation offers ongoing Youtube classes.
Before you watch, It's important that you recognise the METHODOLOGY at work here. While the classes are short and seemingly simple, much work has gone into using the 4 Wings DRAGONFLY Framework (Dragonfly) to help you 'flap less and learn more'. Each course gives you a break-down of how the Dragonfly is being used .
1. TESOL/Literacy Methodology - first language habits, such as making the 'w' sound for 'v' are pointed out. Also, buzz words/phrases are explained using visual aids (vital to understand these very important words and phrases). Literacy skills - appropriate speaking style, vocabulary and sentence structures are covered and strengthened.
2. Speech Formation - speech organs (lips, teeth, tongue and breath), long and short vowel sounds, stretching-in-syllables and blends are spotlighted to make you aware of how to use them.
3. Mnemonic Devices (memory tricks) - many unusual, creative BUT relevant visual items are used, such as the instruments, abacus etc. to help you make connections between the learning intention and your long term memory.
4. Voice Coach - the rhythm of sounds, such as short sounds like 'g', the voiced and unvoiced sounds such as 'b/p' and the pitch of your pronunciation are discussed.
