Event Details: Phonetics and Phonology for English Teachers

Description: Despite the fact that English language learners are almost invariably interested in improving their pronunciation, ESL and EFL teachers often neglect this aspect of effective communication. One reason may be a lack of understanding of the English sound system. This workshop is designed to give teachers an overview of the mechanics of sound production as well as an understanding of word- and sentence-level stress. Appropriate for both experienced and novice teachers, the workshop will help prepare teachers to work with their students on pronunciation and prosody.

Instructor: Howard Williams is a Professor in Linguistics and Language Education at Teachers College. He has taught English overseas and in various community colleges in the U.S. His interests are in general linguistics with a particular focus on syntax, pragmatics, and pedagogical grammar, and his current area of linguistic research is reported discourse.
