Hi all! whoever is reading this, please help me as this is my final attempt for this checkpoint. i just cant get it right.
the question is "Imagine you are teaching the phonemes /l/ and /r/ (/r/ for 'right' and /l/ for 'love'). Your aim is to help your students distinguish between the two sounds and pronounce them as accurately as possible. Remind yourself of the stages (p6) of teaching sounds you covered in module 6 and describe step by step how you would teach these sounds. Remember to give details of a communicative activity at the end. Write about 200 words."
and the following is my answer,
"To make the L, the tongue comes forward, and the tip of the tongue presses against the roof of the mouth just behind the teeth, or sometimes comes through the teeth. To make the R sound, the tip of the tongue is down while the back/mid part of the tongue raises. The back/mid part of the tongue presses against the insides of the top teeth. So, to make the L sound, the tongue tip is up and forward, and to make the R sound it is down and further back. In the R sound, the tip of the tongue is not touching anything. Also, in the L sound, the lips remain more neutral. In the R sound, they round somewhat. And sometimes, at the beginning of a word especially, they round a lot.
I can ask the students to pair up and practice pronouncing the words correctly looking at each other, making sure that they have the correct mouth positions for these sounds."
where did i go wrong? please help!!! too much of brainstorming for the last few days on this question and i'm in need of fresh air!!!!
