It’s been a while since I gave a webinar!
And what better way to make a comeback than via Macmillan’s ‘Advancing Learning’ series, which is devoting the next few months to “celebrating Women Advancing Learning with a fantastic line-up of prominent female experts and authors from the education and ELT world“?
In my webinar for this series on 7 November 2018, we’ll discuss the issue of “Teaching English pronunciation for the real world”. It’s gonna be fun. In fact, it’ll be so much fun, I’m doing it twice! Once at 10:00 and again at 16:00 (GMT); so, whatever time zone you’re in that day, I hope you can make it.
Did you know, for example, that…
- …there are billions of people using English today – and most of them are not native speakers?
- …there is no single accent of English which is most widely understood?
- …teaching pronunciation can be both practical and fun?
- …teaching pronunciation will improve learners’ skills in all areas, not only speaking?
In the webinar, we’ll discuss these points and more, plus try some practical activities for teaching pron. Attendees will get a certificate from Macmillan afterwards.
