Why is pronunciation the missing link?
Pronunciation teaching is often left out of young learner classes. Accurate grammar and a large vocabulary can be wasted if your students can’t be understood. We will look at practical techniques to help you integrate pronunciation into all aspects of your classes.
What are the magic powers of pronunciation?
Focusing on the stress and rhythm of English in your classes can have a positive impact on all of your students. This session will outline aspects of connected speech, syllable vs stress-timed languages, and how vocabulary-based-teaching may be harming your student’s fluency.
This was a fun session with practical tips to use in your very next lesson!
