 Improving English Pronunciation through Picture Book Rhyme Reading Among Fifth Grade Students

Abstract Pronunciation emerged as a field of systematic study towards the end of the 19th century when International Phonetic Association was established in 1886. From 1940’s to 1960’s, pronunciation teaching was of primary importance in the English Language Teaching Curriculum (Atli et al, 2012). It can be found in the amount of research that pronunciation is neglected in the majority of language classrooms. Out of different reasons, English teaching practitioners avoid dealing with pronunciation skills. 

English picture book reading is one of the popular methods developed in recent years to cultivate children’s reading ability based on the picture books. Some picture books share the same character--- rhymes, which are memorable and suitable to chant because of their simplicity, strong cadence and rhythm as well as their humor.

 English is a tone-oriented language with stress and pitch throughout the entire sentence. The rhythm of English is known as the prosody of pronunciation, including intonation, stress, pause etc. English rhythm constitutes an important aspect of the pronunciation teaching, which reflects the most characteristic of English pronunciation. Thus it is called the soul of English phonetics. 

And English as a language which can not only be read, but also be rhymed. The current study based on the picture book singing aims to investigate the development of children pronunciation compared with traditional ways of reading picture books by making experiments and questionnaires in order to give some useful suggestion for the English pronunciation teaching frontiers. Based on the study, it is emergent to improve the recognition of characteristics of English rhythm, the status of English rhythm in phonetic teaching, change the traditional teaching mode and transfer the focus of the phonetic teaching to the English rhythm characteristics.

The author found that picture book rhyme reading has great effect on the development of the stress and pause of pupils’ pronunciation, and it shows obviously the enhancement in their interest in learning English. Some suggestions, for example, the organizer should pay attention to the participants and create a non-threating atmosphere for students to open their mouth and rhyme it out can be applied in teaching. Suggestion details are listed in major findings. 

Key words: English picture book, rhyme, English pronunciation.

通过学唱英语绘本提高学生语音水平的研究----以小学五年级学生为例

摘要语音自1886年国际语音协会成立以来便逐渐发展为系统的研究,而语音教学在语言教学中素来占据重要地位,但出于各种原因现如今课堂教学中语音教学仍没有得到足够重视,或是因为缺少学习材料,或是因为教师缺乏教学技巧,而英语绘本是近几年来出现的一培养学生阅读能力的有效学习材料`辣|文\论*文-网www.lwfree.com,而一些绘本中往往蕴含童谣的韵律,因其语言简单好记,诙谐幽默,朗朗上口,广受学生喜爱。而英语作为一种蕴含语调的语言,具有抑扬顿挫,轻重缓急的特点,而语音中包括重音,语调,停顿,是英语语言的基本特征之一,是英语教学的灵魂。因次本文将以往作为阅读材料的英语绘本创造性的作为语音学习的材料,通过将阅读和听说结合,并采用实验问卷对比分析,研究学唱绘本对学生的语音以及学习英语的兴趣的影响。研究结论表明绘本中的韵律对小学生重音停顿能力的把握有较大的影响,同时也能显著提高学生对学习英语的兴趣。同时本文还提出了类似于创造无惧课堂气氛的建议用于一线教学。 通过学唱英语绘本提高学生英语语音水平的研究:http://www.lwfree.com/yingyu/lunwen_45468.html
