Spoiler alert! Read no further if you´re going to attend this talk and rather like surprises! In this talk, we will take a playful approach to the teaching of pronunciation. We will see how the playfulness may lie one the one hand in the materials we use, as in the case of word-play, rhymes, chants and so on, and on the other hand, in the tasks we set up, as in the case of games and puzzles. We will try out a variety of activities which take a playful approach across all areas of pronunciation, from individual sounds to various aspects of supra-segmental phonology, for both productive and receptive purposes. Where possible, we will look at how teachers may take these ideas and adapt them for different teaching points and different groups of learners.
