For many teachers, teaching pronunciation beyond simple choral drilling, can be an area which creates anxiety. It is often seen as an overly complex and discrete area which is easier to avoid rather than embed in our classes.
While many teacher training courses begin with segmental phonology (individual consonant and vowel sounds), this workshop focuses on the other end of the spectrum, looking at connected speech as an aspect of suprasegmental phonology.
After all, connected speech is what our students will hear and aim to produce. The workshop simplifies the metalanguage of connected speech to make it more accessible to teachers and their students and encourages participants to make choices based on the context of their learners’ use of English, be it in a country where English is an L1 or for English as a Lingua Franca (ELF).
