The Oral Communication Activities to Improve Pronunciation workshop is designed to introduce EAP faculty to segmental and supra-segmental aspects of non-native speakers English pronunciation. Participants will practice the recognition of elements of prosody, such as stress, phrasing, rhythm, and intonation, and will listen to speech samples to help analyze strengths and weaknesses. Ms. Chan will also discuss best practices for providing positive feedback and correction to English learners.

In order to receive Professional Development Credit participants will complete an online module, which consists of creating a lesson plan integrating grammar with writing and content for any EAP Level within two weeks of the workshops. A member of the Project ACE Curriculum Writers Workshop will assess each lesson plan and evaluate each participant's completion.


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

  • Articulate the philosophy and purposes of oral communication activities for EAP students
  • Use a variety of strategies to  integrate oral communication activities in other content areas
  • Develop teaching material that can be used for authentic communication outside of the classroom
  • Create a lesson related to the Oral Communication Activities to Improve Pronunciation
