Phonetics is the study and classification of speech sounds. It is interrelated to other methods of sound analysis such as phonology and phonics. Phonology includes the analysis of sound system as it relates to grammatical forms. In Phonics, diacritic marks indicate long and short vowels and the pronunciation of other sounds, similar to the markings used in Dictionaries. With the current emphasis on literacy, the sounds/spelling/pronunciation relationship of phonetics to speaking, reading and writing is very significant and thus it is all the more important for ESL trainers to pay great attention to it as they will be teaching to students from various countries with different articulation, pronunciation and accent differentiation.
Basic elements of the characteristic of the sounds and symbols are unique, but once that foundation has been acquired, the application of such knowledge provides many oppurtunities in a wide variety of settings including education, speech language, industry, medicine, linguistics, psychology and more. Thus for a Phonetics trainer or teacher everyone is a prospective student and thus the study of the program has global implications on thw whole.
Phonetics science includes the study of speech sounds and the perception of these by the listeners. It does not concentrate on the meaning of sounds in words but rather on the features of the sounds and their influence on one another. Phonetic science has many different disciplines that focus on the different aspects of the production and reception of human speech. Phonology is concerned with the patterning of sounds in a language and is thus comparable to areas of linguistics such as syntax and morphology which deals with structural elements of language at various levels.
The knowledge of Phonetics helps the teacher to understand not just how but why words are pronounced in a particular manner and how the sounds differ. Incorporating phonics instruction in the ESL classroom provides focussed training on the sounds of the English language. When the ESL students learn the meaning of the word along with the sound of the word simultaneously it works better. ESL students’ confidence increases when they are empowered with skills that help them successfully read and pronounce and spell English independently. The effect of teaching phonetics to ESL students is not only effective but powerful also. Our course is designed to make you an effective ESL and Phonetics trainer and teacher.
