Because one difficulty of any language learner is memorizing the correct pronunciation, I thought of an idea to memorize vocabulary by words that rhyme based on a word the learner knows in confidence.
Has anyone else used this method to memorize pronunciation?
Sam - I have just started Fluent Forever; I am 50 pages in. I don't want to make a judgement only a fraction through the book, but I will say I really enjoyed Fluent in 3 Months by Benny Lewis. Thank you very much for these resources, I appreciate it.
Yes, I teach it this way. I either give a few common words that rhyme, or I make a full sentence to highlight the sound they should learn, eg. "At work, the third word is bird." It really helps to connect words!
I think Linkword works much better than what Peach describes:
And here's what I think about Fluent in Three Months:
The website forvo.com is also a good resource for learning how words are pronounced. I make vocabulary flashcards using the program Anki, using audio downloaded from Forvo. It's very helpful in remembering pronunciation. (I learned this technique from the book Fluent Forever, which I highly recommend).
