How often, after working with students on an aspect of pronunciation, did you feel exasperated and would complain to your fellow teachers “They just can’t hear the difference!”?
To make things even harder, teachers whose first language is not English often shy away from teaching pronunciation, because they claim they are not good models. Yet pronunciation teaching does not have to be based on you, the teacher, modelling correct pronunciation at sound, word or sentence level yourself.
In this practical workshop, I will talk about why pronunciation is as important as grammar or vocabulary and how to ensure that it becomes an integral part of teaching a foreign language. We will examine practical techniques which allow us to shift the focus of pronunciation teaching from one based on auditory stimuli to visual stimuli, and which enable us to move away from the teacher modelling good pronunciation.

Preparing for the Workshop
Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.
At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you.
Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.
You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum.
The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world.
After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
This workshop has the following session(s). When all Sessions are completed, you will be presented with a PDF certificate. Click on the link below to access the session content.
