Draw Me a Picture: Pronunciation Tools for Visual Learners

My passion is making English pronunciation simple and accessible for every level of ESL/EFL learner. A few years ago a TD Bank executive told me she was a visual learner and asked me to draw her a picture of the process I use for teaching Speaking.  My whole world changed forever. What does a picture of language acquisition look like? The 6-Point Model for Speaking English sprung forth and every aspect of language learning from the historical breakdown between Writing and Speaking in 1476 and the 6-Point Model (which is essentially the road map to fluency), to Venn diagrams on how English compares to other major languages could all be represented in pictures.

This presentation features a series of images that show how to teach learners to speak English quickly and confidently using simple tools they already have – ABC’s and Colors. Since  Draw Me a Picture was presented at TESL Canada 2015 and TESL Ontario 2015 we have been inundated with requests for Teacher Training workshops and webinars for 2016.

If you are interested in more information on this exciting learning process send me an email:

In 2016  we are booking Seminars in Calgary, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City and anywhere else you want to learn about these tools.

Until next time,

Teacher Judy
