Teaching English as a Second Language


This project is based on the input hypothesis theoretical framework. The literature review explores the importance of pronunciation in English communication, problems with pronunciation and what causes them will be talked about for people learning English. Lastly, since the goal of this field project is to help English language learners in China improve their pronunciation, the third theme is about how to solve pronunciation problems and what learners need. One of the conclusions is that Chinese language learners' performance in the English language is significantly influenced by motivation, attitudes, parental support, openness to communication, and other linguistic and nonlinguistic factors. This field project is aimed at providing solutions and suggestions to the pronunciation problems faced by many Chinese learners of the English language. The curriculum is created for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers working in high schools or universities in China. EFL teachers will use the pronunciation lesson plan to address the issues faced by Chinese students in learning English pronunciation. For Chinese learners, the biggest challenge in oral communication is to pronounce English accurately, which affects their communication in the English language with native speakers. Even if they have studied English for several years and passed English proficiency exams, they still struggle with English pronunciation. This project can help Chinese learners of the English language resolve some of their most significant issues with English pronunciation. The objective is to provide opportunities to the learners to practice English pronunciation.
