Can you help? We need 1000 views in 7 days on our video. YouTube algorithms mistakenly marked it as containing inappropriate material (se xu al); probably because it detected parts of the body used to pronounce. YT review requires 1000 views in 7 days.

What Language Teachers Must Know to Teach Pronunciation

How can language teachers prepare themselves to teach English pronunciation? Three pronunciation experts—Marsha J. Chan, Donna M. Brinton, and Judy B. Gilbert—describe what teachers must know to teach students to pronounce English more clearly. We believe that any well-trained teacher can teach pronunciation. In a live presentation, we provide a training framework drawn on current theory and practice, engage participants in interacting with numerous points, and offer resources for further information. We describe and give examples of essential conceptual issues, basic oral language features, and fundamental instructional concerns. We offer practical suggestions for classroom teachers of English learners. https://marshaprofdev.blogspot.com/2018/02/what-language-teachers-must-know-to.html
