Our Sound Bites were first introduced at our Summer Schools in July and August 2016. Some friends working for a Theatre company and a Speech Therapist helped us to shape the exercises and make it a fun experience. Three years later we are again working on the development of the Sound Bites, but this time we want to use modern technology to make it even more effective.
We strongly believe in PMP, Practice Makes Perfect. The only way to get better at speaking English is to speak it. So in addition to our popular Grammar Points on the Member Pages of our websites, we are now thinking of adding Sound Smoothies, for all 44 Sound Bites. A Sound Smoothy is the opposite of a Tongue Twister. It does not want to make you feel stupid about speaking English, but it wants to help you feel more confident. So we are looking for nicely balanced sentences like “The rain in Spain falls mainly in the plains.” If you or your students are the creative writers of Sound Smoothies, please contact us and we will send you the list.
Materials will be tested in October 2019, so we can put the definite versions on our websites in November. Of course we have a nice present for the contributors.
