ESL pronunciation instruction often falls by the wayside.  This hands-on workshop will give you the tools you need to put more emphasis on pronunciation-whether you teach a pronunciation class, integrate pronunciation into existing classes, or assign pronunciation for out-of-class work.  We will debunk myths about pronunciation, identify the highest priority pronunciation features for all students, and try out the latest techniques and strategies for pronunciation teaching and learning.

* Approved CT&D Workshop for Faculty Professional Development hours.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Identify and describe some common truths and myths in the teaching of English pronunciation
  •  List and explain the highest priority pronunciation features for all English language learners
  •  Explain strategies of integrating pronunciation into the ESL oral communication curriculum
  •  Design lessons that include the latest techniques and strategies for pronunciation teaching and learning
