Elission, Assimilation and Connected Speech.
Elision: Is the omission of sounds, syllables or words in speech. Elision means that you lose a sound in the middle of a consonant cluster, sometimes from the middle of a word. E.g. ‘sandwich’ becomes ‘sanwich’.

Assimilation: This is when the sound at the end of one word changes to make it easier to say the next word. E.g: ‘ten boys’ sounds like ‘ tem boys’

Connected Speech: As a brief overview, there is a strong tendency in English to simplify and link words together in the stream of speech, in order to help the language flow rhythmically.

There are three ways to deal with pronunciation in the classroom:

Integrating it into other activities.
Dealing with it discretely.
And completely ignoring it.
High school students still need phonics instructions over the years. Even though they are expected to know all this, they are still struggling when they are requested for detailed grammar contents. Teachers also want to talk more about comprehension and grammar rather than going back to basics things as phonics. So what to do?
For kindergarten students the most important way of learn is by using practical activities, like playing, singing, and social interaction. These are essential aspects of developing skills and knowledge.

By using this activity you can create interesting activities in which the learners will be more familiarized, for example by watching ,listening, reading and singing songs:

For elementary students, we can make a division between 1st to 5th grade and 6th to 8th grade. Here we can do different activities according to the age of the learner.
With learners between 1st and 5th grade are good activities like showing flash cards, tongue twister and rhyme songs.

With learners between 6th and 8th grade another activity is by using film scenes.

There are multiple ways to teach the language, some of them can be entertaining enough to understand that one word may have more than one meaning and that we can learn them all.
We can teach effective phonics using explicit,
systematic instruction and practice.
