Last weekend I travelled to Bath to attend the ‘Ways of Pronunciation Teaching’ event organised by PronSIG (the pronunciation special interest group of IATEFL – The International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) and Teach it World.
The four speakers at the event and their talks were as follows:
Adrian Underhill Touch base with pron: find the muscles that make the difference Ray Parker ‘Bring back stress-timing!’ – Linking insights into pronunciation to the development of listening skills Mark Hancock Pronunciation Play Edward Hughes Music and Speech
It was a very stimulating and thought provoking day, well worth the epic train journey and absurdly early start. Despite my tiredness I was inspired enough to spend my journey home writing about the day.
Given that so much was covered during the course of the day, I shall post about each of the speakers separately. You can find the 4 individual posts as sub-pages of this one.
