English pronunciation is more difficult, many parents will encounter the problem of children's pronunciation inaccuracy, English teachers to share with you how to correct the problem of children's pronunciation?
First of all, it is suggested that children can watch a complete animated short film / movie first if they have time to get familiar with the plot. Only by understanding the plot can they accurately perceive the emotional feelings of the relevant characters and understand what kind of voice and intonation should be used in what situation.
After reading, let the child follow the passage for 2-3 minutes (the length can be adjusted according to the child's English level). When following the passage, pay attention to several problems: 1. Pronunciation of the word itself. Watching animated short films / movies will inevitably encounter difficult words to read. Usually these words are words with more syllables, which are also easy for children to make mistakes. 2. The intonation of sentences in different situations is directly affected by the situation. 3. The prosodic rhythm of sentences and paragraphs. The reason why Chinese English pronunciation is not up to standard is that there is no cadence, like Laohe shangnianjing, and there is no focus. Secondly, there is no rhythm between words and sentences in sentences. Although listening fluently, it lacks vividness compared with native English speakers.
Therefore, it is suggested that children should pay attention to the rhythm and rhythm of pronunciation when they imitate, instead of focusing on fluency and losing the ups and downs and rhythms.
In fact, in imitation, children can also use dubbing software. The dubbing software also selects the original animated short film or movie, and the length is short, with its own pause, which is very convenient. More practice can enhance children's interest in learning English. Listen to children's songs or special English
Compared with watching animated short films and watching movies, listening to children's songs or VOA Special English may save more time and achieve good results in training children's pronunciation.
In general, children of younger age can choose to listen to children's songs, while children of older age can choose VOA Special English. Most of the children's songs speak slowly, the pronunciation and intonation are clear, and it is not difficult to understand. For VOA Special English, listening repeatedly can achieve the purpose of ear grinding, and lay a good foundation for the later imitation.
But we should pay attention to one point. Here we emphasize the correction of pronunciation, so in the process of listening, there is no need to match the text, and the focus is on "listening".
As we have mentioned before, children's songs speak slowly, which is easy to imitate and follow after listening. The pronunciation and intonation of children's songs are clear and catchy. In fact, listening and watching are very similar. Generally speaking, listening is easier to operate.
Children can get up, or before going to bed, simply listen to a paragraph or two of the content and imitate, and to listen to a sentence, imitate a sentence, do not rush for success. For unfamiliar parts, you can slow down and practice repeatedly. Long time persistence will help and improve pronunciation and intonation.
While listening and imitating, we should pay attention to the pronunciation, intonation and rhythm of words. We should also record what we imitate, compare and improve it repeatedly, and correct the imperfection of our pronunciation again and again. to play
A lively and interesting game can also promote children's English pronunciation practice. We can read a word to the child, but don't make a sound. Let the child guess the word according to your mouth shape.
