CTS-Pronunciation and Phonetics

Course Description:

The CTS pronunciation course is a one-week course for teachers of all subjects. It intends to raise awareness of the key elements of English pronunciation.

The course is practice-driven and adopts the ‘learning by doing’ approach, as it involves participants in experiencing and reflecting on various classroom activities that make learning enjoyable and effective. As an integral part of the course, participants are asked to prepare and deliver a presentation related to their subject area. This provides them with an occasion to put their improved pronunciation skills into practice.

Throughout the course participants will also develop their cooperative skills through participation in classroom activities in pairs or small groups and through peer feedback.
