Are you tired of correcting your students’ pronunciation by having them listen and repeat, only to have them forget the correct pronunciation the next time?  Come learn about how the color vowel system works and how to integrate it into your teaching. You will learn how to demonstrate to your students that the spelling of words is not an accurate way to discover its pronunciation.  The Color Vowel System assigns a color to each of 15 vowel sounds in English and organizes it in a chart that students use to distinguish the sounds. It also teaches students (and teachers!) the importance of identifying the stressed syllable in a word, and the keys to stressing it properly so that English sounds natural. All participants will receive a copy of the color vowel chart, a chart to organize words, and ideas for introducing the chart in their classrooms!

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.
