English is a global language - so why are you still teaching native-like pronunciation?
There's something fishy about the way we teach pronunciation. Take 'th' sounds for example - those notorious phonemes that just won't behave and are actually totally unnecessary to get right for intelligibility. Many 'native' speakers don't nail them every time either. Yet we seem to spend an inordinate amount of class time on them.
I have put all I learnt about English pronunciation for global understanding into a very quick video course. Here you can learn the six essential elements learners need to master to be understood, and understand others around the world.
Stop wasting your class time on things your learners don’t need to master, and change to what is essential, and do-able.
Let's teach (and learn) global pronunciation
In this workshop you’ll learn the six essential elements of global pronunciation.
Who is this NOT for?
Who is this for?
Who I am anyway?
I'm Abbie and I've been teaching English since 2007, I've got a CELTA and a Master's in Applied Linguistics and TEFL. I've put together all this knowledge and done tons of research too to bring you this essential guide to Global English Pronunciation.
What learners said about the learner's version of the course
"I knew that it’s not very important to sound like a native English speaker but now I've got which sounds I have to be careful about to be understood more.
And I listen a lot and my pronunciation has changed a lot. Not only pronunciation but also word choices and sentence stress are also influenced by who I listen to." E, Japan
