Special Event in Collaboration with ITEFL Pronunciation Special Interest Group
Pronunciation Teaching in a Lingua Franca Context
Moderator: ITEFL Pronunciation SIG Co-ordinator Wayne Rimmer
The globalisation of English has multiple implications for the teaching of the language, especially to those learners whose main use of English will be for international communication, often in the absence of native speakers. Nowhere are these implications more far-reaching than in the teaching of pronunciation. This symposium looks at the goals of pronunciation teaching in this new era, and at learner attitudes to new goals, and at classroom practices suited to achieving the new goals.
What is a symposium?
…three presentations totalling a maximum of 60 minutes ,
followed by an open discussion of at least 30 minutes moderated by a chairperson,
a coherent theme, but addressing a topic from different angles.
