BUILDING H-4, room 112 A/B

for a practical workshop entitled

Why? What? When? How?
English pronunciation teaching
at secondary and tertiary levels of education

Speaker: Magorzata Baran-Łucarz

Why should pronunciation be taught systematically at secondary and tertiary levels of education? What model of English pronunciation should we teach? Which aspects of English pronunciation should we focus on when teaching Polish learners. Why and how can they be presented and practised in the classroom? How to find time to increase students’ phonological competence and improve their pronunciation without changing the main aim of a lesson? How to teach pronunciation without overburdening the students and turn pronunciation practice into enjoyable experience? Where to get the materials for pronunciation practice from? Are there any features of American and British English that are worth drawing particular attention to and why? These are the main questions that the participants will find answers to. They will learn about contemporary approaches to pronunciation teaching, based on latest empirical data in this area, and take part in several activities selected from various sources.

Małgorzata Baran-Łucarz – PhD, since 2004 an assistant professor at the University of Wrocław (Institute of English Studies; Second Language Learning and Teaching Section); in the years 1998 – 2013 - a teacher and teacher trainer at the Teacher Training College in Wrocław.
