1.1.1 A : Pronounce sounds and words correctly for effective oral communication.

The Talking Animals

Once upon a time, in a far-off forest, there lived a group of animals who could talk. They were very clever and always had something interesting to say. However, there was one problem - their pronunciation and vocabulary were not always correct.

One day, the animals decided to hold a meeting to discuss their communication skills. They knew that if they wanted to be taken seriously, they needed to work on their pronunciation and vocabulary.

The first animal to speak was a monkey. He loved to imitate the sounds of other animals, but he often got their names wrong. For example, he would call a giraffe a "girraff" and a crocodile a "crack-o-dile." The other animals laughed, but they knew that they had similar problems.

Next up was a parrot. She had a very large vocabulary, but she had trouble pronouncing some of the words correctly. For example, she would say "squir-ull" instead of "squirrel" and "wimmin" instead of "women."

The animals knew they needed help, so they decided to ask a wise old owl for advice. The owl listened carefully to their concerns and offered some helpful tips.

He told them that in order to pronounce words correctly, they needed to pay attention to the sounds they were making. For example, the sound "s" in "squirrel" is different from the sound "k" in "crocodile." He also told them that if they were unsure of how to pronounce a word, they should look it up in a dictionary or ask someone who knows.

The animals practiced their pronunciation and vocabulary every day. They would repeat words after each other and try to say them correctly. They even made a game out of it, seeing who could say the most words without making a mistake.

As they practiced, their communication skills improved. They were able to speak more clearly and effectively, and they felt more confident when talking to others.

One day, a group of humans came into the forest. They were amazed to hear the animals talking, and they were even more impressed by how well-spoken they were. The animals were proud to show off their improved communication skills, and they felt like they had truly accomplished something.

From then on, the animals made sure to practice their pronunciation and vocabulary every day. They knew that it was important to communicate effectively, and they didn't want to go back to their old ways.

The end.

Moral of the story: Pronunciation and vocabulary are important for effective oral communication. Making mistakes is okay, but it's essential to keep practising and learning.
