IATEFL pronsig pre conference event 2016 Mark Hancock

This year’s PCE is an extended workshop with the very practical goal of giving you the tools you need to make your own pronunciation materials. The rationale is that the amount and variety of material available does not match the huge interest in pronunciation. Teachers still struggle to find material which is relevant to their classrooms and can engage learners tired of endless minimal pairs and tongue-twisters. Resourceful teachers often end up having to make their own pronunciation materials but this can be a frustrating and time-consuming process without skills in material design. The aim of ‘Creating pronunciation materials’ is to put teachers in a position to evaluate and adapt existing materials and then produce their own materials. Led by Mark Hancock, an expert in the design of pronunciation materials with many key publications in the area, participants will get hands-on experience of designing materials which suit their own needs with plenty of feedback and encouragement on the way. New and experienced teachers alike will find this PCE a fantastic personal development experience with a very real outcome, a set of  materials which can be shared amongst colleagues and members.
