All over the world teachers often avoid dealing with pronunciation. Some think it’s not important enough, some are not confident in terms of their own pronunciation.
In this practical workshop we will look together at ways in which teachers’ and students’ worries about pronunciation can be overcome. We will also do and analyse a number of fun activities which deal with pronunciation at sound, word and sentence level – activities which you can take into the classroom on the Monday after the conference.
