The need for foreign students to pronounce naturally is of significant importance. In general, classes in which students learn by listening, speaking, reading, and writing, there is little room to focus on teaching natural pronunciation. We have been developing teaching material - the "Kotoba sheet" that can be used while teaching vocabulary to address this problem. The "Kotoba sheet" enables one to effectively teach pronunciation in a short time. In response to our questionnaire, most teachers affirmed the sheet's effectiveness; however, some expressed difficulties in teaching pronunciation. Thus, this prompted the development of a teachers' manual for the "Kotoba sheet." This study gives an overview of the development of the teachers' manual for the "Kotoba sheet."
