TOKYO, JAPAN Students' Session (10:30AM to 12:30PM): "What is the Color Vowel Approach?" English Pronunciation Workshop 8/7/19


Tired of speaking English with a katakana flavor?

How do you know how to change katakana English to natural pronunciation? Do “bug,” “bag,” and “bog” sound the same for you?


It’s NOT too late to change your pronunciation! Come to the workshop about the Color Vowel Chart and learn how to discover all 15 vowel sounds of English. You will learn how to stop depending on the spelling of a word to discover its pronunciation. You will learn how to hear the different vowel sounds and assign a color to each one. You will also learn how to identify the stressed syllable in a word, and the keys to stressing it properly so that your English will sound natural. These are the keys to pronouncing English in a natural way. All participants will receive a copy of the color vowel chart and a chart to organize words.

正しい発音を身につけることは、今からでも遅くありません。英語が持つ15種類の母音の発音を「Color Vowel Chart」を使ってこのワークショップで学びましょう。スペルはいつも発音と連動しているわけではないのです。日本人にとってまぎらわしい英語の母音を、それぞれの色に割り当てることで、違いをきっちりと把握することができます。またアクセントの位置を正確に発音することも重要です。それによってより英語らしい発音へと変わっていきます。母音とアクセント、この2つが自然な英語の発音への鍵です。また参加された方には、「Color Vowel Chart」と「Color Vowel Organizer」を進呈いたします。

Japanese speakers often have difficulty being understood in English. The sound systems of the two languages are very different. Japanese speakers are usually left with the limited choices of katakana sounds when they speak English. The most important sounds are the vowel sounds, and since English has many more than Japanese, this creates a big problem. Participants in the morning session will learn to differentiate between the 16 vowel sounds of English by using the Color Vowel Chart. The Color Vowel Chart is a revolutionary new system of categorizing the stressed vowel sounds…and remembering them! Come learn about the chart, learn how to hear the different sounds, and how to make them! The session will also cover the difference between /r/ and /l/ sounds and the important difference between numbers 13 and 30, 14 and 40, etc.
