📖 Pronunciation instruction through task-based language teaching (TBLT)
This seminar will introduce attendees to methodologies used to teach English pronunciation in the classroom. We will first try to debunk some longstanding myths and misconceptions around the learning of L2 pronunciation in the classroom. We will then explore the tenets of task-based language teaching (TBLT) and analyze studies that report how TBLT has been successfully applied to L2 pronunciation instruction. Intended to be practical in nature, the seminar aims to show current and future teachers of English that a few proven techniques can go a long way toward helping students improve their English pronunciation.
