Hey Lynn, it's a great video! Looking froward to the training workshop!

Hey Ross! Thanks for your feedback! I'm already in the works of creating a Training Workshop using the ideas/games from my video.  Both Laura Wilkes and Matt Courtois recommended this. I'll be sure to pass it on to you once it's finished! Cheers!

Love the video Lynn! The chart showing the common mistakes could be very useful for teachers at all levels. I wonder if you’d be able to make a training workshop using some of the techniques used here. Even at Diploma level teachers regularly fail to include adequate pronunciation practice. Also, good call for having a bit of Styx as your intro music!

Hi Lynn, this is a great training video. I liked how you outlined your ideas. The lip reading activity looked really engaging, an activity that I am going to try doing in one of my classes. Great work!

Hi Lynn, 

This is a great addition to strategies we can use to increase engagement in the classroom. Both the activities you demonstrate get learners practicing their pronunciation by working with their classmates. The first activity on lip reading is great for highlighting the physicality of pronunciation and can be adapted from sounds in isolation to target language words covered in class. Zip zap zop is also a versatile game that is a great way to wrap up a lesson and help learners to retain what they covered in class. 

In your presentation you look at why pronunciation is important by drawing attention to the fact that it's fun as well as it's what the learners want and need. The activities you use are solid examples of how fun phonology is and how easily it can be integrated into classes. Fantastic!
