PRONUNCIATION OF VOWELS AND CONSONANTS [part 1]
Some 7 or 8 years ago I created columns with words containing specific sounds (phonemes) to enable my ss to practise vowels or consonants step by step. The method I applied is quite commonplace: I pronounced a word and ss repeated after me. Mind that the practice starts with the easiest exponents and while ss move on, they come across more complica...

THE FUNCTIONAL LANGUAGE OF DESCRIBING JOBS
As you might know, different grammar points can be associated with concrete topics or vocabulary. What I suggest is use the grammar of modal verbs to describe various professions. Ss not only speak, but also reinforce the use of modals. What do you think of that?
