In collaboration with ITEFL Pronunciation SIG

GOING GLOBAL: SPEAKING, FLUENCY, PRESENTATION SKILLS AND PRONUNCIATION

Effective speaking revolves around developing overall oral fluency. In this section, learner goals for speaking, listening and pronunciation will be examined with the aim of raising learner and teacher awareness of the requirements in these areas for effective communication in an internationalized educational setting. The section is viewed as a platform for discussing and sharing hands-on experience and best methods and practices.

In your abstract, please make it clear how the audience can apply what you say to their own context. This is especially important if you are planning to describe a course or a project, and if your presentation relies heavily on a description of a local situation.
