Welcome! If you teach or tutor refugees, young or old, than you’ve come to the right place. Several years ago, I worked as a Case Manager in refugee resettlement. Though brief, this experience was the catalyst that started me on my journey as an ESL instructor and current graduate student in the field of Foreign Language Education/TESOL. It is my hope that this blog may serve as a place for educators to network with one another in the service of refugee students.

Another great tool for pronunciation!
Three cheers for the University of Iowa and their web page, Phonetics: The Sounds of American English! This website is another great online tool for pronunciation instruction and practice. Instructors can learn the technical and laymen terms used in pronunciation instruction and students can make great use the sites explicit instructions and visuals to identify and differentiate sounds, watch how each sound is produce via computer animation as well as video clips and practice pronunciation on their own!
