Having given webinars, workshops, talks and plenaries around the world, and having interacted with hundreds of teachers, I'm always amazed by how many of us struggle to teach pronunciation EFFECTIVELY and with CONFIDENCE.
Or how many avoid teaching it all together...
Or perhaps leave it for the last two seconds of the class...
Or don't know how to zoom in on their students' needs...
Or focus on the wrong things...
Or are worried about their own pronunciation, especially if they have a foreign accent.
I thought it might.
But do you know what?
I TOTALLY get it.
I used to feel like that too. I'd avoid teaching pronunciation all together. Or I'd just follow whatever pronunciation activities were in the course book. And I'd constantly worry about my foreign accent too.
I've come a long way since, though.
So in this webinar masterclass, I want to share with you my 5 best tips that will really help you become more effective and confident at teaching pronunciation, while at the same time helping your students really improve their pronunciation.
Enrol for the next webinar below.
