Last week, we wrote about how to get our students to improve their pronunciation. And as promised, here is our example script with sample audio by a native speaker.
We decided to take excerpts from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in Spanish. Students do not need to be familiar with the words in the text, because the purpose is to work on letter sounds, not comprehension. I decided to choose this particular text because many of my students also had to memorize the speech for their LA/LIT class, so I thought having this same text across curriculum areas would be a good tie-in for a students. You could also use poems or songs in Spanish.
Check out the 4 steps on how to use this as an assessment.
