Tools that you can use in your English language classroom.

Presenting 4 of Dr. Lauren Gawne’s favorite resources for teaching the linguistics of English.

MRI videos to teach the IPA- watch what is happening in people’s mouths when they make different sounds.

There are so many great online resources that you can use with students to enrich your English Language classroom, and in this series we’ll look at 4 very accessible and useful tools. You’ll learn about each one through a watch-on-demand video and in your own time do a hands-on activity you can use in your classroom. The tools are linked to the Areas of Study and come with step-by-step video instructions and contextualising information.

  • MRI IPA: Look inside people’s heads as they pronounce all the sounds in the IPA
  • Linguistics Roadshow: Tracking Australian regionalisms
  • Google N-grams viewer: Track the popularity of words over time
  • ELAN: Transcribing audio and video

Lauren is a Senior Lecturer in Linguistics at La Trobe University.

Lauren is also passionate about sharing linguistics with wider audiences through her blog Superlinguo, By Lingo, a column for ‘The Big Issue’ about the history of English words, and the podcast Lingthusiasm, which she co-hosts with Gretchen McCulloch.

“Thanks so much for your work this year – we were delighted with the marking we have had done by you for both our mid-year trial exam, and our October test. I believe it was a great learning experience for our students and the feedback we received in both cases was most helpful.”
