Do you know this site?

While studying the English consonants (again) I came across this site. Hope you might find it helpful, I think it can be useful for teaching pronunciation.

This is an excellent resource, Rosa! The consonants are pronounced correctly* and it is easy to navigate/understand.

Also, you can download all the sounds in one zip file- how nice!

*I still wish some sounds, like "L" and "R", were pronounced with no schwa sound (it is possible) at the end, but I'm not sure if I have heard a completely correct online pronunciation guide (and most teachers don't do it correctly either.)

The problem with added schwa sounds is you confuse beginning readers... so the word "let" gets pronounced as "lƏ-et" .... and the student does not recognize the symbols l-e-t as the word, let.

Kids get over that pretty quickly, but for ESL, why add one more confusion to the mix?

Enough of my rant- nice resource!

Thanks for the tip, I'll learn "derogatory" by heart, derogatory, derogatory, derogatory, derogatory, derogatory, Enough? Hope so.
Thanks again for being always sooooooooo nice.

:D I think you used "derogative" fine, Rosa... I just had to do a spell check with my poor spelling, and picked "derogatory" out of the list! :D

degrogative adj.

1. Tending to derogate; detractive.
2. Disparaging; derogatory.

I am not a grammar queen, but I am an excellent reading teacher!
