Upcoming pronunciation event (UK) announcement!

Just a quick post to mention an event coming up next month…

  • Are you interested in pronunciation teaching and/or want help developing this skill?
  • Are you free on Saturday 17th June 2017?
  • Can you get to Cambridge, UK?
  • Would you enjoy spending a Saturday in a picturesque English city, developing your teaching skills with like-minded colleagues (and probably free biscuits)?

If the answer to all these questions is yes, sign up to attend the next IATEFL PronSIG event! I’ll be speaking there, alongside plenary speakers Francis Nolan and Jonathan Marks, plus many more.

Here’s the abstract for my own session:

How to identify pronunciation priorities in the multilingual classroom

In many UK cities, the typical English language classroom contains students from a number of first-language backgrounds. One class might comprise 12 students who don’t share any language other than English! For teachers of such groups, it can be tricky to identify which pronunciation features to focus on in class. Where to begin when the students all have different needs?

And you can download the full event details (including individual sessions) by clicking here.

Hope to see you there!
