Teaching pronunciation

A short post today, just to share a game available online for students to practise word stress (notice it's designed to be based on the vocabulary presented in each unit of their textbook):

Incredible English (OUP): Stress monster!

And here's another game, aimed at practising homonyms (two words are homonyms if they are pronounced or spelled the same way but have different meanings ): Word Frog>Homonyms

Try them and have fun (be brave and choose the highest levels of difficulty!!!) !

Do you think activities like these ones can actually contribute to our students' learning the pronunciation of English? Share your beliefs by posting a comment!
