Hi, Piotr,
Thanks for your reply. What you are doing seems very
interesting. In fact what I'll do is to offer the
oppotunity for our students to correct their English
pronunciations through our intranet. That's why I
think it'll be interesting if I can use some colors.
Actually I've found it: the Silent Way of teaching
foreign languages. I don't know yet how it works. I'll
observe some classes using it.
By the way do you know any interesting books on
phonetics? Thanks.
