Integrating Pronunciation into ESL Lessons

Date: Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Time: 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Location: Minnesota Literacy Council main office, 700 Raymond Avenue, Suite 180, Saint Paul, MN 55114

English language learners are hungry for pronunciation instruction, but it is challenging for ESL teachers to find a teaching method that is effective without being too technical and confusing. As a result, teachers often leave it out altogether. Research tells us that pronunciation instruction should begin when learners are at a beginning level and continue throughout their English language learning careers. During this workshop we will look at areas of pronunciation that will have the greatest impact on ESL learners’ intelligibility. We will explore how to tackle pronunciation at any instructional level and how to integrate pronunciation instruction into existing content-based curriculum and lesson plans.
