Working on pronunciation can be enjoyable and rewarding, and it is one of the most important ways we can use face-to-face class time. This course aims to give participants an overview of the main issues in pronunciation teaching, including questions of accent, suitable models and evaluation.
What are accents? How do they vary from place to place? How do they vary over time? What is the connection of accent to social class? What kinds of accent variation are there? What are the implications for language teaching? These are some of the questions we will be looking at in this guest lecture at NILE Manchester.
