A natural process in connected speech whereby sounds (i.e. phonemes) change or blend together based on the preceding or following sound. This change is made naturally by native speakers to facilitate pronunciation.
Connecting ideas and concepts together as they relate
to certain experiences. Association can help students remember new vocabulary
by connecting new words to words with similar meanings or by helping students
make their own personal connections.
Asynchronous Online Learning
Online lessons that
do not require students to be online at any particular time. These classes are
often pre-developed courses consisting of content or modules that students work
through without the real-time assistance of an instructor.
Resources that are used in English-speaking countries by native speakers. These are real-world selections produced for a native English-speaking audience, without consideration for the second language learner. Examples include newspapers, books, brochures, leaflets, menus, tickets, bank cards, library cards, etc.
An approach that
combines both traditional classroom teaching and online educational tools to
create a hybrid or “blended” learning experience.
