Ibaraki JALT:

Actually Teaching Listening

Date: Sunday, April 27th, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Alastair Graham-Marr, ABAX

Description:
Teaching listening effectively means teaching both phonology and knowledge of discourse. A working knowledge of the phonology of natural connected speech, elisions and liaisons, weak forms and reductions helps students with their 'bottom-up' decoding skills. Developing student knowledge of discourse, particularly of scripts (those discourses in English that tend to follow a set pattern) helps them with their 'top-down' predictive skills.

Organization: Ibaraki Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Ibaraki JALT)

Cost: free

Venue: Ibaraki Christian University, Hitachi Omika
