1. Identify vowel sounds in a given word.
Vowel sounds are grouped into two, namely: monophthongs (or pure vowels) and diphthongs (or impure vowels). The impure vowels can be subdivided into two groups: centring diphthongs and closing diphthongs. Also, the pure vowels can be subdivided into two groups: long vowels and short vowels.
Altogether, there are 20 vowel sounds of the English language shared amongst the different groups of vowels as follows: short vowels (7), long vowels (5), closing diphthongs (5) and centring diphthong (3).

Learning Objectives – By the end of the lesson, the students should be able to:
1. Complete a given sentence with the following auxiliary verbs: have, has, had, have had, has had, and had had (Source: Ref E2-02, Pg 9).
The present perfect is used in two ways:
1. It is used when an action starts in the past and continues to the present or
2. It is used when talking about past actions WITHOUT saying when they happened.
In the present perfect, the auxiliary verb is always have (for I, you, we, they) or has (for he, she, it).
The past perfect is used when one past action happens before another past action/event.
In the past perfect, the auxiliary verb is always had.

Stress and Rhythm:
The way we sound words and sentences when we speak is essentially called phonology or pronunciation. It involves a combination of stress, rhythm and intonation.
Students also need to be understood when they speak. Therefore, clear pronunciation is important. In addition, when students take English language examinations, like WAEC, NECO, and UTME to prove their level of understanding of the language, there is always a speaking test and pronunciation is usually examined. Examiners listen for stress, rhythm and intonation as these are important markers of fluency and can change the meaning of a word or sentence. Now, let’s describe the meaning of each term
See more of the explanation in this video.
Word Stress
This is saying a syllable or part of a word more strongly and can be at word level. Generally, English words have two or more syllables, namely: the stressed sound and the unstressed sound. Not all syllables are stressed within a word. Stressed sounds take a bit longer to say. A stressed sound is generally louder, longer and at a higher pitch. For example, EN-glish, com-MU-ni-CA-tion. So, when you say a word that has more than one syllable, remember to make the stressed syllable louder, longer, clearer, and higher pitched

Question 1 of 5

Week 8: 06-11-2023

Antonyms in English Language

What is an antonym? An antonym simply refers to contrast in meaning. That is a word of opposite meaning, e.g. hot and cold.

Week 9: 13-11-2023


What is Intonation? Intonation is the melody of our speech. It is the ‘music’ of the language. It defines how our voice goes up and down in pitch. Often, questions can be asked with a rising intonation where the pitch goes up. This might be a genuine question to which you don’t know the answer. ‘John’s still on holiday?’ said with a rising pitch means it’s a question which needs an answer. If it’s said without a rising intonation, it’s information that you already know and you may just need confirmation. Intonation can also show emotions like surprise, etc
