Pronunciation work supported by IWB in SecondaryUploaded by Graham Stanley, British Council Barcelona (Spain)
In this videoclip, the teacher introduces the learners to the most common sound in English (schwa) and asks learners to listen to a recording and identify the words that contain this sound. Volunteers are asked in turn to come to the IWB and highlight the sound, and other suggestions are provided by learners sitting in the class.

"I made the recording of this text with another teacher, which is why I told the learners they might recognise one of the voices. I was happy with how it went, and I think the learners benefitted from doing this on the IWB rather than individually looking at pieces of paper or a book."
"I like doing different activities, and this was something that we hadn't done before, so it was good."
