E and I vowel sounds
Teaching ELL students, I have noticed they have a very difficult time learning and remembering the vowel sound of E and I in words. What are some strategies to help them remember the difference between these two vowel sounds?

Associating the sound with words or names will help remember the sounds. For example, icky fingers icky fingers, /i/, /i/ or Ellie Elephant, /e/ /e/.

Then, attach a visual to this and the linguistic memory is boosted even further.

I have found that sounds are best learned through drill and practice. Repetition is key.

The students need help with Phonetics and Phonology. The sounds are confusing because its not always about sounding it out. The letters that comes before and after the vowels will determine how that vowel will sound. The teacher also would benefit from learning the common 'mistakes' made in the language acquisition process. These are common mistakes with many strategies for assisting learners. The teacher has to locate and implement them.
