Your English Project

* What is the hardest thing, for you, about learning American English pronunciation?

American idioms/slang

 

* Do you actually want to learn the pronunciation of American English?

 I am actually interested in learning American English more than British one.

 

* What is the most important thing that I should include in my new system?

TESOL/TEFL. I would like to become a volunteer English online tutor, so I can be confident and qualified teacher. I do not have any background or a work experience.

 

* What isn't needed and should not be included in the new system?

 Nothing.

 

* What would help you the most in learning pronunciation: video, audio, or written text?

 All of these methods are great.

* What else can I do to make this project the best possible? (Tell me your thoughts.)

 You should not only focus on pronunciation. This must include the four skills of learning/teaching English, plus the grammar. Regarding the teaching, it'd be better if you provide the following:

  • Teachers and learners. *
  • Introduction to English grammar and parts of speech.
  • Teaching theories, methods and techniques.*
  • The present.
  • Managing classes.*
  • The past.
  • How to teach new language.*
  • The future.
  • Teaching receptive skills.*
  • Modals and conditionals.
  • Teaching productive skills.*
  • Passive voice and other commonly taught grammar items.
  • Teaching pronunciation.
  • Lesson planning.*
  • Lessons in practice (Video/CD ROM).*
  • Course books and other classroom materials.*
  • Educational technology.
  • Evaluating and testing students.*
  • Teaching special groups.
  • Trouble shooting.
  • Supplementary unit/module - Finding a job and thirty-five top tips for classroom teaching. 

You can add more assessments and quizzes, so you can track the progress of students.
