Earlier, I watched the opening ceremony of the London Olympics 2012 at Solar Sports TV. I think there were more than 200 nations that participated in the opening. The opening was fanta-bulous! (HAHA, I mean fantastic and fabulous) 🙂
I went in front of our family computer to go online and search for Teacher Melanie, then I saw this video (Pronunciation – How to Say the Names of all the Summer Olympic Sports.)
beach volleyball /bitʃ ‘vɑ:libɑl/
canoe – slalom /kə’nU: ‘slɑləm/
canoe – sprint /kə’nU: ‘sprInt/
modern pentathlon /’mɑ:dɚn pɛn’tæθlɑn/
synchronized swimming /’sIŋkrənaId ‘swImIŋ/
table tennis /’tæbəl ‘tɛnəs/
weightlifting /weIt ‘lIftIŋ/
I enjoyed this 7-minute video, and it was fun to hear Teacher Melanie’s voice. She really has an amazing pronunciation.
Thanks to Ma’am Jen Monje, who introduced us to Teacher Melanie’s site! Very educational!
