The Reluctant Teacher
This extract from the Introduction to Out of Your Seats addresses some of the issues that cause language teachers' reluctance to engage in drama activities.
Susan Hillyard and Eugenia Dell'Osa have chosen such great travel reading that they want to share it with the world. Can't blame them really. :-)
They were flying Buenos Aires to Bolivia, I believe.
Thanks for your support, Susan and Eugenia.
Syllabus Stress Table
Task-based pronunciation teaching
Given that English word stress is a problem without a systematic solution, the Syllable Stress Table is an activity that focusses students' ears on the number of syllables in words, and then which of them is stressed. I have found that once students know this about a word and know that this is worth focussing on, they have more confidence in their pronunciation and they have a system for developing this aspect of English pronunciation.
