Say What? Tips, Tricks and Tools for Teaching Second Language Pronunciation
October 2 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Language Studio presents the first in a series of virtual workshops focused on language learning. Join Dr. Gillian Lord of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, who will discuss teaching second language pronunciation.
Pronunciation is often the most salient feature in the speech of a foreigner, yet explicit pronunciation instruction remains one of the most neglected aspects of classroom pedagogy. Knowing the problem areas and how to address them with students can have a significant impact on their awareness of and ability to improve their accents. This presentation explores various tips, tricks and technology tools that can and have been used, focusing on theoretical and pedagogical justifications.
