Download slides and other materials at the bottom of this page! Pronunciation crosses two domains: it is part language - like grammar or vocabulary, and part skill - like speaking or listening. This unique position makes pronunciation teaching interestingly varied – and potentially very enjoyable too. In this workshop, I will suggest that we can in fact divide it into four general areas, and I will label these with a mnemonic of four words, each beginning with M: muscle, mind, meaning and memory. For each of these, I will demonstrate success-oriented activities we can use in the classroom, drawing from my experience of over 30 years writing pronunciation materials. I will also try to inspire participants with ideas to create their own materials.
