You must have read my recent post on the conversation I had with the father of a prospective student:

To follow up, the prospective student sat in on my colleague’s class – he’s American – and then, came to my class the following day. This group has lessons Mondays to Fridays, 2 hours each time. I take 6, and my colleague 4.

At the end, she confirmed that whe would like to carry on attending the classes, and what’s more, talking of the ironies of life, seeing a poster of a phonemic chart on the wall, she mentioned that she has never been taught the symbols. I told her that if she had the time, I don’t mind staying a while to teach her.

To cut a long story short, there I was teaching pronunciation to someone whose father was rather, ahem, fussy about teachers’ accents! 😉

After I wrote the previously-mentioned post, I thought it a waste to let it sit on the blog and maybe a few dedicated followers of mine would read it, and that will be that. So, I decided to make a lesson out of it!

Needless to say, I won’t be doing it with the class where this girl will be sitting in! Too risqué! 😉

The rudiments of the lesson is set out in the embedded PowerPoint below. Sources are credited in the PowerPoint itself, so download it if you wish to do the lesson with your crowd.
