В данной работе предлагается система коррекции и улучшения фонетических


навыков в период, когда уже прошло значительное количество времени после
постановки произношения. Известно, что на средней и особенно старшей
ступени обучения произносительные навыки учащихся ухудшаются. Многие
фонетические явления уже забыты учащимися, многие кажутся им
несущественными. Более важное место, на их взгляд, в средних и старших
классах занимает овладение лексикой, грамматикой, умением быстро и
правильно высказать свою мысль. Может быть, это и так, но учителю бывает
очень обидно, когда его упорный труд по выработке у учащихся правильных
фонетических и интонационных навыков на первом этапе обучения практически
сходит на нет. Какое разочарование он испытывает, когда слышит беглую,
грамматически правильную речь своих взрослых учеников. Ему режет слух их
небрежная фонетика, когда звуки произносятся кое-как, а английской интонации
нет и в помине, ее почти полностью заменила русская. Горькая мысль: «А чему
же я их учила? Куда все делось?» не дает покоя, понимаешь, что надо что-то
делать, но что и, главное, когда? Ведь урок и так насыщен до предела. И
приходишь к выводу, что минимальную часть урочного времени (5 минут) надо
отвести фонетическим упражнениям, пусть даже за счет чего-то другого. На наш
взгляд, мириться с этим нельзя, развитие и поддержание на должном уровне
произносительных навыков учащихся – повседневная работа учителя. Так
появилась эта работа, цель которой - интенсивная фонетическая тренировка на
средней и старшей ступенях обучения.
Надо приучить детей, что урок начинается с раздачи каждому листа с
фонетической зарядкой. Когда это входит в привычку, сидящий перед столом
учителя ребенок молча берет приготовленные листы, раздает их всем и также
молча собирает их после окончания работы. Учителю удобно, что по одному и
тому же листу работаем во всех классах с 5 по 11, т.е. нет никаких
организационных хлопот.
Верхняя половина каждого листа предназначена для учащихся 5-6 классов,
остальной материал – по выбору учителя и степени фонетической
подготовленности класса. Какой звук тренировать сегодня – решать учителю,
выбор произволен. Обязательно нужно напомнить учащимся правила
артикуляции каждого тренируемого звука. Работаем хором, в парах и
непременно индивидуально, контрольное чтение и оценка за него через 2-3 дня
работы над звуком стимулирует учащихся к серьезной работе, т.к. иметь
хорошую оценку хотят все.
Предложения и диалоги, расположенные в средней и нижней части каждого
листа, имеют фонетическую разметку, что дает возможность работать также и
над интонацией – нашим больным местом. Надо постоянно напоминать
учащимся, что английские фонетисты подчеркивают тот факт, что для
изучающего английский язык гораздо важнее приобрести хорошие
интонационные навыки, чем правильно артикулировать звуки языка.
Последние 6 листов работы посвящены 6 основным интонационным контурам
современного языка. Если обучение интонации детей младшего и среднего
2
возраста носит подсознательный, имитационный характер (подобно тому, как
интонация родного языка усваивается ребенком в раннем возрасте) то на
старшей ступени, а особенно в 10 – 11 классах с углубленным изучением языка,
целесообразно дать минимум теоретических знаний, ибо не все обладают
хорошим слухом и способностями к имитации.
Примерами теоретических положений, с которыми можно познакомить
учащихся, могут быть следующие:
1. Самым важным элементом речи является предложение. Каждое
предложение несет в себе не только смысловое значение, но и обладает
определенными фонетическими чертами, без которых оно не может
существовать: паузы, синтагмы, мелодия речи (чередования высоты
голоса), ударение, ритм (ритмическое чередование ударных и неударных
слогов), темп речи (ударные элементы произносятся медленнее, чем
безударные), тембр голоса, меняющийся в соответствии с эмоциями – все
эти фонетические черты предложения образуют сложное единство,
называемое интонацией;
2. Самыми важными компонентами интонации являются мелодия, ударение и
ритм;
 Существует 6 основных мелодий языка, причем каждой соответствует
свой эмоциональный настрой:
Low-fall - спокойный, холодный, неэмоциональный, незаинтересованный;
I think I’ll be free on Sunday.
Low-rise - успокаивающий, откровенно заинтересованный, дружеский;
Can you tell me the exact title of it?
High-fall - оживленный, эмоциональный, показывающий личную
заинтересованность и теплоту говорящего;
You’d better try it again.
High-rise - вопросительный, немного небрежный;
Had a good holiday?
Fall-rise - высокоэмоциональный, теплый, симпатизирующий; в
специальных вопросах – жалобный, усталый;
Hullo, Peter. I’d like to live in a house like that.
Rise-fall - высокоэмоциональный, говорящий чем-то поражен или даже
напуган, в случае отрицательных эмоций – вызывающий, осуждающий;
Sorry. Is she really interested?
 Ударными являются смысловые слова (существительные,
прилагательные, смысловые глаголы, наречия, указательные и
вопросительные местоимения), а остальные – безударными.
Количество безударных слов в английском предложении намного
больше, чем в соответствующем русском предложении.
 Говоря о ритме, можно привести следующее высказывание английского
фонетиста Майлна: «Случается, что иностранец приобретает
прекрасное произношение и даже правильную интонацию и не может
понять, что же выдает его неанглийское происхождение. И виноват в
этом случае может быть только неправильный ритм.» Основные законы
ритма : ударные слоги следуют друг за другом через регулярные
промежутки времени: чем больше количество безударных слогов между
3
ударными, тем быстрее они произносятся; многосложные и составные
слова в потоке речи под влиянием ритма теряют одно из своих
ударений.

__________ Oh! No! Why! Fine. Sure. When?
___________ Good. Quick. Right. Wait. Stop.
2)
___________ Have you? Is it? Can’t you?
___________ Does it? Aren’t they? Oughtn’t she?
Wait for her. Talk to her. Write to them.
Borrow one. Show mw one.
3)
___________ She had to. I’d like to. Of course not. A friend of mine. She wasn’t there.
___________ You must tell her. He’ll be happy. Just listen. And so on.
He came with us.
In a day or two. I thought so.
4)
___________ Come here. Look here. Sit down. Don’t leave. Look out. No more.
___________ Ask John. Not now. How strange. Quite right. That’s true.
That’s all. What for? Where to? Who from?

I’ll finish it now. She married Mary’s brother.


She asked me to go. It’s time the children went to bed.
I am sorry I came. How many people have you invited to dinner?
He doesn’t speak much English. What sort of weather do you have in London?
He’s never very punctual.

LOW RISE.

1)
___________ Yes. Fine. Now. Who? Why? Where?
___________ Me? All? Stop. Good. Right.
2)
___________ Careful. Always. May I? Is there? Can’t you? Aren’t we? Try to.
___________ Sorry. Thank you. Really? Wait a bit. Possibly. Hasn’t she?
3)
___________ Remember. We haven’t. Continue. I’m sorry. Is he happy?
___________ Does it matter? Do you think so? There’s plenty.
4)
___________ That’s right. That’s good. That’s all. Never mind. Don’t bother.
___________ Good bye. Come here. Why not? How soon? Later on?
Not now? Cheer up! Sit down. Who’s that?
All right. Well done. No, thanks.

Can you come to lunch tomorrow?


Shall I answer the door?
Have you heard the news?
Have you been waiting long?
Were you in time?
There’s plenty of time to prepare the dinner.
Ring me up some time on Thursday.
Come and stay with us again soon.

HIGH FALL.
1)
___________ Help! Yes. No. Why! More. Good.
___________ Fine Mine. Wait. Quick.
2)
___________ Always. Really. Was it? Thank you. Fancy! Surely.
___________ Gladly. Stop it. Wait for them. Certainly.
3)
___________ It’s easy. Good gracious! How lovely! He’s coming. Good morning!
___________ She might be. By no means. We’ve seen it. I’ll call on him.
4)
___________ Why not? Well done! I say! How strange! Ask John.
___________ Oh, God! Bad luck. Thank you! Look out!

I think you’d better ask the others.


I thought it was going to rain.
I couldn’t say ‘no’ to you.
In spring it rains a lot.
We haven’t seen him for years.
But think of all the difficulties.
Skiing is the sport for you.
Nobody told me what to do about it.
Why do you have to leave at once?
It’s more than I can afford.
I know you well.
What nonsense!

HIGH RISE.

1)
___________ Yes? Me? Here? When? What?
___________ Now? You? Right? Wait?
2)
___________ Often? Really? May I? Like it? Which one? My fault?
___________ Must I? Isn’t he? Interesting? All of it?
3)
___________ You thought so? You like him? You’ve lost it? They think so?
___________ You feel it? In October? It’s a new one?
4)
___________ No more? Not true? Too big? What for? Well done?
___________ Right now? Too busy? No news? Three times?

Another cup of tea?


You don’t regret it?
You want it back?
Something the matter, Ann?
It’s not the one you want?
She married Mary’s brother?
Don’t worry, did you say?
Who should I write to?
Where am I to sit?

FALL RISE.

1)
___________ Yes. No. Well. Read. Quick. Look.
___________
2)
___________ Show me. Always. Sorry. I did. Come on!
___________ This time. Help me. Catch me. Hello!
___________ That’s right! That’s good. Yes, please.
___________ Jolly good. Here you are. Many thanks.
3)
___________ Be careful. It’s easy. She might be. ___________
___________ We broke it. Not remember. He’s coming ___________
4)
___________ I beg your pardon. He asked me to do it.
___________ You told me to ask her. How are you, Mr. Richards?
What shall I do, Paul? Well, what’s the time, please?

He can’t hear me.


You won’t see him.
We know where it is.
I know he is very well-read.
It must be finished in time.
Do be quick.
That’s enough.
We don’t mind.
I beg your pardon.

RISE FALL.

1)
___________ No. Try. Thanks. Quite. Good.
___________
2)
___________ Really. Always. Show me. Ask him. Thank you.
___________ Can’t you? Do so. Keep it. Aren’t they?
3)
___________ Naturally. Probably. Perfectly.
___________ You can go. Do sit down. That was good.

Any time you like.


That’s what you think.
I quite agree with you.
Nobody at all.
I thought you knew.
I simply hated it.
How did you manage it?
Isn’t it ridiculous?
Which is the best way to do it?
But I don’t want them to come.
I’m much obliged to you all.
I don’t like them very much.
That’s perfectly true.
