Hotfixing learners’ listening skills
Highlights:

Why do learners of English often have difficulty understanding authentic speech?
One reason is that the speakers’ pronunciation may be markedly different from what the learners expect to hear.

Synopsis:

During this practical workshop you will

- explore the typical pronunciation features that often cause listening difficulties;

- briefly look at insights from the field of psycholinguistics that can inform the design of effective listening activities;

- look at a range of simple practical activities designed to help learners notice and readjust to problematic aspects of pronunciation;

- discuss how to incorporate such activities into any listening lesson.



The material will be the most relevant to the participants who work with adults and teens.
