Description  

Outline:
In this short adventure, we help Ando-San (an original character) on a quest to get the Katakana Katana, a sword he will use to fight bad English pronunciation.

This class is aimed at high school level students, suitable for Middle school to first year senior high school. I used it as an introductiory lesson for my first year senior high school students.
 
Topics Covered:
In this lesson we focus on common pronunciation mistakes that come from learning english through Katakana. This lesson focuses on minimal pairs, illiteration and hard to pronounce sentences to drill sounds.
  • Hard and soft consonant sounds, and removing vowel sounds from speech. (e.g. And instead of And-o)
  • V vs B (arising from バ ビ ブ ベ ボ)
  • L vs R (arising from ラリルレロ)
Student Outcomes

Students should be able to:
  • Remove a few common pronunciation mistakes from their English
  • Be able to tell the difference between minimal pairings
