TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Leslie


Leslie is a Canadian English teacher at a junior high school in the Japanese countryside. In this TESOL review, Leslie tells us she is looking to open her own English language day care centre at her home and with this in mind she took the 120-hour certificate course with ITTT as well as the 50-hour young learners course to bring her qualifications up to date. Hopefully for Leslie this will be the first step on a rewarding career as the owner of a successful English language school in Japan.

The teaching of pronunciation and phonetics are an important part of language instruction. Sounds within speech can impart different meanings. Intonation is the variation of volume and pitch over a whole sentence, which adds emotion to the communication. Stress is placed on certain words within a sentence and syllables within a word to denote emphasis. Articulation deals with the formation of words using the throat, mouth, and nasal passages. The phonetic alphabet is a universal system of English pronunciation that is helpful in teaching students the correct pronunciation of words.
