Guided Reading Lesson


 

The reading session is the continuation and direct application of the phonetics lessons.
It is a valuable opportunity for the teacher to check and correct the student’s pronunciation.  Newspaper articles, poems, songs, or excerpts from novels are used.
During this part of the lesson, I guide the student as necessary so that he or she pronounces each word perfectly.

Thanks to this exercise, it is possible to become aware of one's pronunciation mistakes and progressively improve one's accent. The awareness of the students pronunciation and the contrast of their pronunciation with the correct one are important elements of my teaching.

The success of this training results from mastering both pronunciation and spelling rules.  After several phonetics lessons a student should be able to read a text with a very good to excellent pronunciation despite the fact that French is not a phonetic language.
