“After several decades of creating and publishing pronunciation materials, I’ve hopefully learnt a few tricks of the trade! In this session, I’ll talk you through some of the thought processes involved in designing activities, from diagnosing a problem through to finding an appropriate solution, while avoiding some of the traps along the way. After this initial presentation, which will be a very practical demonstration and light on powerpoint, we will move into a more extended Q&A session on all matters relating to pronunciation and the teaching of it.”
