Post-ELF at BrELT on the Road -

Mark says: BrELT is "A Global ELT Community Made by Brazilians", and apart from energetically connecting teachers in online chats and sharing forums, they organise "On the Road" events, which people can attend in person. This year's edition is in São Paulo and I have been invited to be the first speaker on the day. This is what I plan to speak about:

Post-ELF Pronunciation Teaching: Most learners today need English to communicate in a lingua franca (ELF) environment.
The recognition of this fact has disrupted pronunciation teaching. What model can learners aspire to if not a ‘native speaker’ model? What can be considered ‘correct’ or ‘incorrect’? These are just some of the questions we will consider in this presentation on  pronunciation teaching a post-ELF era. Here's a video inviting you to this talk!
After doing this presentation, I will be going to some of the other talks and workshops, including key notes from Claire Venables, Higor Cavalcante, Natalia Guerreiro and Vinnie Noble. I will also present a workshop on pronunciation teaching techniques and have a display of our PronPack books. See you there?
