ELLIS Master Pronunciation 3.0
ELLIS Master Pronunciation improves the speaking and listening
skills of English learners at all levels.
Expanding upon the pronunciation tools in each level of the
ELLIS Academic 3.0 suite, Master Pronunciation focuses on
pronunciation skills for English learners ages 8 to adult.
ELLIS Master Pronunciation allows students to hear how words
sound and to see how sounds are formed. With video models,
animated graphics, and native language instruction, students
learn where to place the tongue, teeth, and lips to pronounce
each sound. Learners can record their voices for comparison
to native speakers. Additional features draw direct comparisons
among similar sounds.
All-new tutorials in Master Pronunciation focus on a variety
of suprasegmental skills such as rhythm, stress, and intonation.
Each of these tutorials includes extensive practice opportunities
to ensure students master these key aspects of English pronunciation.
Hundreds of minimal pair items allow students to improve
their aural discrimination skills, and sound-specifi c tongue
twisters provide more pronunciation practice. These may be
randomly presented or selected by language background. This
fl exibility enables learners to focus on sounds that are
problematic for them.
With over 1,300 hours of instruction, ELLIS Academic 3.0
combines digital audio and video, voice recording, role-play,
and native language support to create an engaging, research-based
environment for every level of English language training.
ELLIS Master Pronunciation is part of this complete, enhanced
ELLIS solution for teaching and learning the English language.
Not only do our students show increased proficiency
in ESL courses, but other instructors have commented on how
much better these students are doing in English.
