Pronunciation as a listening skill

There is a video of this lecture recorded at TESOL Spain, Bilbao below. Pronunciation is just as important for listening as for speaking. In this workshop, we will see how to help learners to understand authentic English by focusing on pronunciation. Specifically, we will look at features of connected speech, intonation, and accent. Participants will leave with lots of practical ideas of how to exploit authentic listening texts in the classroom. (I have also presented this workshop at a TESOL regional event in Madrid) More on making authentic listening materials? See this article.
