The SEE IT & SAY IT PROGRAM is the only English language accent correction program that concentrates on both the pronunciation problems of specific language groups as well as offering a program that focuses on students with monolingual language backgrounds. Available languages in the specific language series are: Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese. The monolingual accent reduction series is designed for ESL/EFL language students with diverse language backgrounds from Africa, Asia, Europe, The Middle East, and Latin America.

 

Crossroads Specific Language Accent Reduction Series

 

Features of the specific language accent reduction series:

 

Each Program Contains:

The series opens with a lively interactive presentation of the letters of the English alphabet. Emphasis is on how to pronounce the letters for the spelling of names, addresses, and technical terms.

The different sounds of American English consonants and vowels are pronounced in the context of a word. A closeup of lips pronouncing each word is presented and then a representation of the word (image or photo) is given, thereby providing vocabulary items for all levels of learners.

A series of close-ups indicate the proper position of  the tongue, teeth, and lips, when pronouncing specific consonants. Practical self-correcting drills help to diminish native language interference. Entertaining vignettes make contrasting words easy to remember.

A series of close-ups indicating the correct position of the tongue, teeth, and lips guide the student in properly pronouncing initial and final position clusters. Practical self-correcting drills and exercises complete this segment.

 

Practical exercises and drills provide immediate remedies for specific pronunciation problems.
