Pass the mirror

The mirror is a very useful tool in a pronunciation class. When trying to get the tongue in place for /l/ or the lips for /r/ or opening the mouth a little wider for vowel sounds a lot of giggling happens when looking in the mirror. it lightens the mood a little.
Accent reduction or pronunciation training can get a little 'depressing' as you are focussing on your errors rather than your achievements so a little laughter goes a long way.
