February 20 #LINCchat Summary: Teaching Pronunciation



Understanding pronunciation is essential for successful listening and speaking yet it’s sometimes neglected in our language classrooms. In our February 20 #LINCchat, we asked questions and shared resources and ideas for introducing pronunciation-focused activities in our classes.

Thanks to the educators who shared their thoughts during this #LINCchat and those who added their thoughts after the chat: @thespreadingoak, @LINCInstructor, @TanyacowieCowie, @ElleninSaigon@salaamay, @jennifermchow, @StanzaSL, @EALStories, and @ESLlibrary.

Thank-you also to moderators, Jennifer Chow (@jennifermchow) and Bonnie Jean Nicholas (@EALstories) for facilitating the discussion and keeping us on track.
