We are still looking for a (English speaking) speech therapist for our child. We are aware that the Anglo-American school has one. Perhaps someone knows of a recent arrival.

Many thanks

I am not trying to promote myself as I am busy this time of year untill the Summer months. But those EFL teachers who have had plenty of experience of teaching children, and as part of their study in learning have studied and practiced pronounciation Will have great success in teaching Russian children English with correct pronounciation. There is nothing magic about it, as it is science, knowledge and experience.

I have taught Russian young children from the age of five for nearly six years. I teach them all skill of the English language, and this includes speech and pronounciation. It is al part of the skills of a language teacher.

The trick is basically to find the areas of problem. Young children do have problems on certain types of words. One reason might be that they don't know where to place the tongue. Another reason is breathing and timing.

It is not rocket Science, and parents can find books and guidance also on this subject. It wouldn't surprise me that there are books and magazines in Russian to help your child to pronounce. Believe me it is not difficult, and a very common problem here in Russia. But they do grow out of it, although a specialist in pronounciation will help them get out of it quicker.

Examples of difficult sounds for children. This, that then with thing, think, thank. Now show them where they put their tongue. If necessary draw nice pictures.

Also yellow, young, allow. Also Hurry, Harry, but funny enough not Hello.

For example ambulance might be pronounced like ambyance by a very young child, but are you really concerned. It's will sort itself out eventually.

All qualified teachers experienced in teaching children English are able to teach good pronounciation to children. Even those with a speech problem. And also for those vigilant parents? Your help are also needed. You should also assist with the teaching of your child to pronounce properly. The information and advice is available to you you, if you could only search. I did , and helped my own children, because I couldn't afford a speech therapist, and also I was too tightfisted to pay so much money for so called magic.

I have been looking for a qualified, english speaking speech therapist for my daughter. As far as I can tell, they only one is at AAS (that is the primary reason we chose that school). Apparently there were 2 others in Moscow, but they have since left.

Good luck in your search.
