Come and watch an author/teacher attempt to give series of mini pronunciation lessons in front of a live audience! In doing so, I hope to be able to demonstrate the more collaborative, negotiated, discovery-led approach which I’ve been trying in recent years. This session is suitable for teachers, and participants who wish to work on their own pronunciation – or both! Download below...

Listening as a Creative Process
Findings of research into children’s processing of spoken language illustrate the creative nature of listening. What do we mean by ‘listening as a creative process’ and how can we use this when teaching listening to adults? In this workshop, we’ll look at some techniques which help learners develop transferrable skills and strategies and take them beyond a ‘one-off’ listening experience.

Mark Hancock The Complete Pronunciation Workout Ede

Sometimes pronunciation deserves more than a passing correction or one-off task. In this workshop, we will see how pronunciation points can be worked on from various different angles, in coherent and enjoyable task sequences. Participants will try out example activities and discuss them. You can download the slides below.
