We produce PronSci charts for use with students at all levels, and Silent Way charts for use with true beginners if the teacher is using the Silent Way methodology.
The set of PronSci charts simultaneously offer an analytic and a synthetic view of English pronunciation. They comprise
The full set can be seen here.
The PronSci charts can be used alongside any approach for teaching grammar and vocabulary, and any textbook.
They are available for British and American English. The British charts are suitable for all varieties of English within the mute-r family (including RP, Australian, New Zealand and South African) and the American charts for all varieties found in North America (including General American and Canadian). This is possible because teachers can assign their own speech sounds to the colours.
The charts are available in different sizes suitable for classrooms with more or less wall space and classes with different numbers of students. In general, we recommend using the largest size of chart that you can fit onto the wall space available.
If your wall space is limited, we would not recommend using the small set with more than 5 students, the medium set with more than 12 and the large set with more than 50.
The charts are printed on a tough polyester canvas using matte inks, so they can be seen clearly even if hung where a poster would suffer from light reflection. They can be rolled for transport and storage.
For English and French charts (PronSci or Silent Way), the prices for a set are as follows:
For Spanish Silent Way charts, all classroom sizes are available, at a single price of £80 (about €95 or $110).
When working with one (or at most two) students, the charts should be positioned vertically (off the table top), and within the student's reach to be able to point on the charts comfortably. (Wall space for the charts can be supplemented by using an artist's easel if necessary.)
The One-to-one sets are printed on card, with each Word chart at A5 size.
The price for an English or French set is £75. The price for a Spanish set is £45.
Individual sets are available for self study at £9/€10/$12 each. A set contains 3 (French) or 4 (English) A4 cards in colour, with 2 B&W keys.
For Spanish, individual sets for self study cost £4/€5/$6.
Postage and packing for individual sets ranges from £3 to £7 depending on the destination. Please contact us to purchase.
