Week 1 Why teach pronunciation?
We start the week by thinking about why we teach pronunciation and what pronunciation to teach. You will also familiarise yourself with the main features of pronunciation. You will be asked to reflect on concepts such as intelligibility, fluency, foreign accent, language variation, articulation and acoustics.
By the end of this week you will have:
- considered the differences between intelligibility and foreign accent
- reflected on your own practice and the most challenging points for your students.
