Practice for Pronunciation Accuracy and Fluency

Speaking

Unlike other interventions, the Neuron English program addresses three critical steps for English language proficiency:
*Preparing the brain to “hear” the sounds of English.
*Providing intensive practice in English vocabulary, grammar and reading skills; and *Giving students the opportunity to practice speaking and reading aloud with real-time corrective feedback.
Some Exercises Examples:

It’s difficult to provide individualised attention with only one teacher and a class full of students. With this technology, that corrective feedback is instant. It’s also individualized so students can proceed at their own pace. That makes it a very powerful tool.

Pronunciation Correction
The Neuron English programs use speech recognition technology to listen to English language learners as they read aloud.

Our solution includes Fast ForWord®, the top-ranked intervention for English language development on What Works Clearinghouse™

Oral Reading

The student makes oral reading of texts of various complexity. The student starts with reading out loud and listening to correct pronunciation.

Each reading is checked for comprehension and meaning.

Vocabulary
When a student has difficulty reading a word, Reading Assistant provides a visual cue. If the student does not self-correct, the software intervenes by pronouncing the word.
Supported Practice
We have the only program that uses advanced speech recognition technology to listen to students and offer them corrective feedback on decoding and pronunciation when they start to stumble.

Phonological Fluency
This exercise improves the student’s ability to recognise similar sounding spoken words by using auditory/visual spatial working memory to locate matching syllables.
Phonemic Discrimination
This exercise builds phonemic discrimination and listening comprehension skills that help students recognise different sounds.
