Focus on Pronunciation: Stress and Intonation

A while ago my students asked me to give them a class on Pronunciation. To be honest, they don't have any problems with pronouncing English sounds but still don't feel that confident about their accent. So I decided to start with stressed words in the sentence and intonation.
The lesson was successful, so I decided to share the lesson plan:) Hope you find it handy.

Warm-up Idea Word Cloud

The game is called Word Cloud. Student A needs to say a word in English related to a particular topic, e.g Health or Shopping, and the following one has to say another word beggining with the ending letter. This is a nice way of practicing your pronunciation and at the same time revising the vocabulary of the unit.The whole game takes no longer than 5 min.
