Hey Laura, you are so efficient to put the video on the website. The video looks quite professional and the settings matches the ppt slides very well.

Hi Laura

I Very clear visuals showing where the sounds are on the chart and easy to understand examples (e.g. eat and it). Your learners clearly enjoyed the first activity and this activity raised their awareness of how the phonemic chart is laid out. The final task engaged students’ discussion regarding sounds and encouraged peer correction.

Well done for including both theory and practice within the five minute time limit.
