MEP Pinnacle Solutions releases online English program for Spanish Speakers
On January 13, 2016, MEP Pinnacle Solutions releases a new online language program by world traveler, freelance teacher and writer, Michael Powers. Entitled ‘Pronunciation for Spanish Learners of English’, the program is a bilingual course in Phonetics written for Spanish speakers, designed to give clarity to English word structure and sound, take the drudgery out of learning English, and improve the oral communication skills of Spanish speakers . The author, now visiting PDC, Mexico, successfully used this same approach in Asian classrooms to teach Chinese and Koreans to read, speak, and understand English.
This is the first time that the US-born teacher of Asian adults and children shares his unique English teaching style and methods with western countries (in this case, Latin America). The program is available online targeting Mexico, and Central and South American countries. Publicity and availability will be through two pages hosted on the Singapore domain www.elaanslist.com .
The program itself allows the Latino student to learn and practice the many aspects of English pronunciation at their own pace with or without the physical presence of a teacher. It is best used as a ‘supplement’ to a well-rounded English course. Oral, listening, and visual word exercises and drills are combined to sharpen students’ recognition of the structure of words. Tests and quizzes of spelling and narrative writing are included in every module to enhance listening skills so important for aural comprehension and fluency. The program also provides the additional sounds which must be mastered to speak English, sounds which are not present in the Spanish language experience, as well as advice on how to learn and practice effectively for retention and mastery. All that is required is a tablet, notebook, or desktop pc with an internet connection, and a headset or ear buds.
Most teachers find this innovative program to be an overdue and valuable supplement to their present teaching programs and use it to strengthen, enhance, and upgrade even their own teaching methods. Asian teachers have successfully adapted the same methods to master English fluency in their own cultures with diverse linguistic backgrounds. Even native English speakers receive early school training in Phonics to learn to speak their own language properly. It’s expected that Spanish educators will apply these same methods of English tuition to their own programs as an alternative to current methods in use, making English a more enjoyable experience for learners.
What makes this program so important for a percentage of Latin Americans are the economic factors and cultural attitudes toward learning. This includes educators who are under pressure to pass marginal or non-performing students, students who believe that working is more important than education, no direct home internet connection or computer, even non-involvement of parents in a child’s education. This program, when used by teaching professionals or ambitious students, can raise the standard of English tuition and ease of learning adding skilled individuals to the pool of workers in the various economies spanning Latin America.
