To read better, improve your pronunciation?

To read better, improve your pronunciation? | TELT | Scoop.it

ELT blogger Rachel Roberts: "To read better, improve your pronunciation…. from a talk by Catherine Walter."

Shona Whyte's insight:

According to Roberts, Walter's research suggests we "sub-vocalise and record the sound of what we are reading," and so "we would be better off teaching [learners] to improve how they ‘mentally represent spoken language’ than teaching comprehension skills."

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | TELT | Scoop.it
I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Examples of classroom practice with teenagers using Storybird after reading activities.

Shona Whyte's curator insight, December 14, 2012 1:43 AM

Some changes on the EFL shorts website: new categories to accommodate stories of different lengths and adult readers.  There seem to be 4 full stories now, two or which are medium-length with learning activities, and there is one short story.

Anabel's curator insight, June 2, 2014 5:22 AM

Great site for EFL learners. Short stories with reading comprehension activities.
