Intonation to express feelings

While doing my researh for my final portfolio of my Phonology module at the UNAM, I found this interesting online test.

Could you say what feelings are they expressing?

Good Luck and have fun ;)

Phonics alphabet ABC songs

Sometimes it's difficult for beginner students, to understand the difference between the letter "name" and it's phonetic correct pronunciation.

Found two videos wich I think may be useful as a tool with the little ones to show them the difference...

A useful tool to practice pronunciation is using Minimal Pairs...

I think this video can help us, and also students, to practice.
