When we use Captur paddles for pronunciation activities, we are mainly looking at whether or not our students can distinguish between certain sounds, either receptively (listening) or productively (speaking).

It's usually pretty difficult for my Japanese students to make the  distinction between "thirteen" and "thirty", even at the lower intermediate  level. Often, when they say a number like 16, it sounds like "sixty", and when  you repeat the number in English to confirm it ("Did you say sixty?"), they say  "yes, 16." This page talks about using Captur Paddles with words that sound similar.
