Sat Jan 16 1900 UTC Judy Thompson Teaching English Vowels made Simple

https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cpffkf4oflluttsmoulm6dhr558

If you only ever teach ESL/EFL students one thing in Pronunciation let it be this. Research shows the best way to teach new information is by attaching it to old information (things learners already know). What is the first and often only thing students know in a new language? The names of colors. This webinar teaches how to use the names of colors as an accurate, inclusive foundation for the pronunciation of all English words. BONUS: you’ll also see how to help students find and generate WORD STRESS perfectly every single time. Grab a coffee, pen and paper and prepare to have your socks blown off.
