Attention ATESL Members Interested in Pronunciation!
Date: January 8, 2016 - 10:21am
Did you know that there is an international conference devoted to pronunciation learning and instruction? And did you know that it will be held at the University of Calgary this August?
The 8th Pronunciation in Second Language Learning and Teaching (PSLLT) conference will include a Round Robin session on Teaching Tips and Strategies, generously sponsored by ATESL. It is free of charge to all ATESL members. The Teaching Tips involves several presenters from Canada and abroad who will be seated at different tables. They will welcome about 5 people at a time to learn about a specific pronunciation teaching tip. The presenters have 7 minutes to explain their tip, and then a bell rings, and individuals will have 3 minutes to move on to another table. This session provides an easy and fun way to pick up great new ideas for your classes!
The Teaching Tips and Strategies session will take place on Saturday afternoon, August 13, from 3:30-5:00. We also encourage ATESL members who have an interest in pronunciation teaching and research to attend the whole conference, (but for this you will need to pay the full conference fee). Please see the PSLLT website for more information: http://llc.ucalgary.ca/psllt2016/
