guess what you have said!
Listen, Speak and Learn through EyeSpeak's visual feedback helping
you develop the language skills needed for everyday English communication.
Lesson Plans and Easy User Guide
Pronouncing English by EyeSpeak suggests individual lesson plans according
to the students' level and pronunciation problems. These individual
lesson plans can easily be amended by teachers if necessary. To use
this program to its full potential, teachers do not need any particular
The user guide and the detailed Online User Manual enable teachers
to know EyeSpeak inside out very quickly.
Various Levels of Difficulty
Teachers determine the difficulty level of each phoneme that students
have to pronounce. This difficulty level is adapted to each individual
student to suit their needs more closely. During practice time, teachers
can change the difficulty level of each student if they see that some
progress quicker than the rest of the class.
Teachers also have the possibility to decide how many times students
should repeat a phoneme before moving on to the next. Teachers are therefore
able to individually monitor and follow up on each student's progress.
Quick learners have the opportunity to improve rapidly while slower
students can also spend valuable time practicing.
EyeSpeak enables teachers to manage their time more efficiently with
their students. Each student is in a position to reach the desired level
faster without holding the class back. This situation therefore allows
for more students to be successfully taught at once.
clearly see their progress, which encourages them to perform even more.
Teachers can also monitor the length of time spent studying with EyeSpeak.
The number of sessions done by students, as well as the exercises practiced
and the time spent on each exercise, are recorded by EyeSpeak for further
teacher's reference. Teachers can use these data to refine their lesson
plans or write students' reports at the end of term.
EyeSpeak is an innovative and interactive software that keeps a student's
interest to a high level by using different methods of learning and
giving students immediate, personalised and accurate feedback. No other
software currently does it.
Feedback is provided from four different sources that complement each
other very well:
- EyeSpeak provides visual feedback to students, based on their own
performance. This feedback is shown with a colourful graph where all
the phonemes pronounced by the student are plotted. The student's
graph is plotted against the teacher's so that the student can check
how well they performed. The teacher's correct pronunciation appears
in a different colour so the student clearly sees what phoneme is
wrong and how to improve.
- A picture of the student's mouth shows them how they positioned
their tongue when they said the word. Students can compare their picture
with that of their tutor to see how their tongue should have been
- Brief and clear sentences also tell students how they should move
their tongue in their mouth to reach the right position and pronounce
the phoneme properly. The use of widely known phonetic symbols makes
it easier for teachers to point out pronunciation problems and for
students to learn the correct pronunciation, though it is not essential
to know these symbols to dramatically improve pronunciation.
- A progress tracking tab shows how well students performed by giving
a success rate based on each pronunciation attempt and on the overall
pronunciation exercise. This written track record is a percentage
which students can easily identify with to gauge their level and progress.
Teachers can also use this written track record for their own record
on each student's progress.
Variety of Exercises
- Students can choose among a variety of exercises to improve their
English pronunciation. They can learn minimal pairs or more complex
- Students can check the spelling or meaning of the words by using
the picture dictionary.
- Students can also train their hearing with the playback option where
they can listen and compare their pronunciation with that of their
- Students can also develop their listening skills by doing tests
where they have to identify and spell random words pronounced by their
- Students with problem sounds can practice them in personal study
time or at home without holding the rest of the class back and feeling
embarrassed and frustrated. Teacher's time can then be shared more
equally between all class students.
