A. Introduction-

EVENT .-SS will be told they are going to do an activity for pronunciation and it will develop as next.

B. Development-

Activity 1.SS will receive a brief explanation on how to make the ''th''sound ,the teacher will explain them they have to put their tongue against their upper teeth and they will have to blow air slightly in the upper part and in the lower as well. They will try to make it unvoiced avoiding their vocal strings to vibrate.
2.SS will receive a feather taken from the feather stick ant will be asked to put in on their palm and to make the desired sound and once they can make it they can pronounce the word and blow the feather. The teacher will have them to try to pronounce some words in this way ,all at the same time walking around the classroom and will have them to do it while He/She monitors them.

Activity 2.- SS will be asked to remember the sound of radio waves interference and to emulate it,for the ''sh'' sound acquisition,the teacher will take the old radio and will turn the synthesizer knob while making the sh sound and after a little lap of time the teacher will act to have found a radio station sounding some word that starts with ''sh'' like shhhhhhhhhhy! then the teacher asks SS to do it one by one.

Activity 3.-The teacher will show the SS how to make the ''h'' sound using a mirror.SS will be taught how to make this sound and will try to steam up the mirror and just saying the word in turn if the have seemed it.
Note:Try all the words you consider convenient.

C. Practice-

In the practice part of this lesson We will use music to teach diphthongs.

The teacher will sing a couple of memorable lines and the SS will sing along Him/Her ,at the end of the lines students will pronounce some words that rime with the ending word of the song in a rhythmic way.
I composed a brief line which says ♫ I want to learn some English today ♫ hey hey hey ♫ (SS say hey hey hey) then the teacher sings ♫ break ,break break ♫ (SS sing break,break,break,) and so on....

D. Independent Practice-

Independent practice will help them to feel confident if they are not comfortable pronouncing in front of the whole class. The feather activity will help them a lot since they will be trying it and walking around the classroom chasing their feathers.

F. Checking for understanding-

The best way to check their understanding in this lesson will be the fact that they are or not pronunciating correctly.

G. Closure-

This activity is designed to be used on Friday having as goal to review pronunciation seen during the week and to step a little out of a tight ''rule teaching method ''having as a main purpose the FUN factor.The SS will find this lesson comfortable and will get involved in an inductive way of approach of English pronunciation by the use of TPR, real and group interaction.
