Birdie 256, I know yo asked for replies from NON-ESL teachers (thats not me!) but I have a question that you may be able to help with.
One of my 4 year old students never pronunces the "hard c" sound or the soft "ch" sound. For example "car" sounds like "are" and "chips" comes out like "yips".
He is able to say the softer "g" and "j" sounds pretty well though.
Do you know any things I can do with him to help him recognise and pronounce these sound? (bearing in mind that he hardly speaks any English and can't read yet.)
Any help would be really appreciated (as I have no clues at all!)
