Learn How to Pronounce New Words

It's very important when you learn what a new word means, to also learn how to pronounce the word, so today's activity use a very simple website which gives you models of how to pronounce words.
The website is called 'HowJSay' and all you have to do is type a word in to the search box and click on the submit button.

You will then see a list of words that have a similar spelling. The word you want will be highlighted in pink.

  • You can use this tool whenever you find new words that you want to use, but to get some practice, let's learn some quotes from Shakespeare. Go to Shakespeare quotes
  • Try to learn 4 quotes. Check the pronunciation of any words you don't know using 'HowJSay' .
  • You could also go to the BBC news site at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/and look for words there that you can't pronounce. After you hear the words try to pronounce them.
I hope you enjoy this activity and come back tomorrow for more EFL ESL activities.
