Which of the three levels of pronunciation, i.e. SOUND, WORD STRESS, or INTONATION do your students most struggle with? Why?
1) What is the L1 of the majority of your students? How does their nationality influence the issues they have pronouncing the SOUNDS of English?
2) Can you think of some typical issues your learners have with WORD STRESS? How have you been trying to help them with these?
3) How flat or rich is your INTONATION pattern? What other speakers of English do your students get to listen to? Is their intonation pattern wider or narrower than yours?
