Is it easy to pronounce past tense -ed?
Hello, I want to tell you about something that completely changed how I teach American English pronunciation. And I hope you can benefit from my experience.
I looked for a solution.
As a speech and pronunciation teacher at a college for many years, I taught the standard pattern for -ed: voiceless and voiced sounds…then /t, d, Id/…a lot to learn all at once.
Unfortunately, even advanced students were not always sure of the pattern. They couldn’t self-correct easily…still guessing.
I found a solution.
Five years ago, I found a solution. I stopped teaching /t, d, Id/. I created a clear, simple 2-Step Method based on the natural speech of native speakers, who link words together in phrases and sentences.
Also, there is no need to learn voiceless-voiced sounds.
Result: 5 years of success…students easily learning -ed…no more guessing.
And so I created a course for you.
Now you can use the same materials that I created for my students.
- You can use the course with no preparation. Saves you time.
- You don’t need any supplementary material.
- No need to teach voiceless-voiced sounds or transcription.
- Only 20-30 minutes of class time…your students will know the pattern.
- You can learn on your own, without a teacher.
- The method is based on the natural speech of native speakers.
- No need to learn about voiceless-voiced sounds or transcription.
The course consists of…
- 5 Videos
- 8 Audio Quizzes
