Three ways to hand over pronunciation to your learners
We, teachers, tend to deal with every skill or system in a tedious, methodical way, sometimes following our course book, other times guided by years of experience teaching that particular item. My talk will show you that you can and should give your learners the tools necessary to allow them to “teach” themselves, improve outside the classroom, increase their motivation levels and spike their curiosity. The learners are in our same boat and our aim is to gear them so that we can relinquish the rudder and they still float, or rather, are happy to be in command and able to do so.
Raising learner awareness, giving basic phonological insight calibrated to their comprehension capacity and introducing a steady use of educational games and technology in the classroom, all these can achieve the previously stated aim.
