It’s not easy to teach pronunciation and it’s usually not a priority when there are so many other things to teach out there. But if you adopt the right method it is possible and very worthwhile. First, you need to understand the gaps between English and the first language of your students. When that happens, you’ll need to figure out a way to explain to them what to do with their speech organs: their lips, their tongue, their vocal cords, etc. You’ll need to know how to prioritize their phonetic challenges, and to know which feedback is crucial and which is better left for the future.

  1. Dear Hadar! Thank you so much for your English! I live in America many years but still now people asking me where I from after few words. I am from Russia. Your lessons so helpful and interesting. Thanks

  2. Hi Hadar ! I have just finished watching your new video as exquisite and outstanding as all your videos. But prior of watching this video I was carefully listening to your breathtaking podcast.

    Dear Hadar ! May I ask you, are you aware that you created here a quite general intellectual system to influence other human beings’ both cognitive and emotional psyche. To influence their psyche for corrections making possible them for easier emerging above herself/himself to achieve her/his goals. (That is to accomplish that Goethe has dreamed about in his “Wilhelm Meister”.)

    Each of the 13 points would need a detailed analysis. (Perhaps, besides learning English language and English accent some of your University students may decide to work on one of these points for a PhD.) For me the podcast was particularly important because of my “dry eyes” handicap. Thank you so much for your clear, absolutely understandable talking. If I may suggest anything, in the future the podcast may be one of you important tool in accomplishing your so valuable and important aims. Laszlo Latzkovits

    1. My dear Laszlo, thank you so much for your words and am extremely happy you liked my podcast.
