Pronunciation of the regular past tense “t” and “d” endings is often problematic for students. How do they learn and remember to pronounce “talked” as one syllable? Here is a song that will make it easy, as well as provide an effective device for remembering the rules!
“Always Ted, Never Ed” is a little bit country western in character. Intended for advanced beginners to advanced students, the humorous song tells the story of a young woman who has to choose between two suitors. They compete for her attention in appropriate and inappropriate ways!
This package includes audio download, complete lesson plans, lyrics, listening activity, grammar and vocabulary exercises, a puzzle and illustration. Suggested conversation introduces the topic of desirable characteristics in a life partner.
The song may be used as a first introduction to pronunciation of past tense regular verbs, or as reinforcement and review for more advanced students…who are still making those pronunciation errors!
