Answer the following questions. Post your answers on our Yahoo Group.  Please use the subject heading "Week 5 (Your Name)".

a. What can beginning teachers or teachers in training learn from my presentation?

b. How exactly can the video supplement a pronunciation lesson you are teaching? 



Assignment 2:

a. Explore the quizzes/ exercises I offer at EnglishCafe. It is free to join this online community, but membership is required to view and create quizzes.

b. This first sample is a quiz on the pronunciation patterns of phrasal verbs. It accompanies a video I posted on YouTube on the same topic (Lesson 19).

d. Choose a video from my YouTube collection dated before May 2009 and create your own follow-up exercise using the quiz builder on EnglishCafe. (Click here to view a tutorial on

   how to use the quiz builder.) Be sure to state in the quiz description that it supplements one of my videos and then provide the link to that video. 

e. Once your quiz is published on EnglishCafe, share your link via the posting on our Yahoo Group.  (I will collect and post all links on the Participants' Page here on our wiki.)



Assignment 3: Answer the following questions. Please post your answers on our Yahoo Group. Again, please use the subject heading "Week 5 (Your Name)".
