ORAL ENGLISH: Pronunciation Test / Advice for Improving Pronunciation

Lessons Objectives:
This lesson is designed to identify any problems with pronunciation. After each student has spoken they will be given feedback on their pronunciation.

Guidelines: Imagine that the year is now 2050. You are required to give a speech at your retirement party to a large audience. The speech will look back over your life, including details about your personal and professional accomplishments and contributions to the world during your lifetime.


The speech should be written and rehearsed before the test. Reading is acceptable, but not encouraged. You should try to speak naturally. You should speak for between 3 and 5 minutes. You can also use props if required (pictures etc).


Students must correctly use specific vocabulary such as names of professions, correct sentence structure should be used throughout, and the speech should use the correct tense when focusing on the past. The main aim of the test is to identify any problems with pronunciation.
