Shizuoka JALT:

Pronunciation and Business Materials Writing

Date: Sunday, May 19th, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Christopher Jon Poel, Musashi Kogyo Daigaku and Robert M. Homan, International Christian University

Robert and Chris will first discuss materials for teaching pronunciation. Using lessons created by the presenters, attendees will see how such topics as shopping, giving directions, and solving murder mysteries can be easily manipulated to allow for pronunciation practice. In the second half of the presentation, the presenters will discuss materials that provide social and cultural information through business-oriented topics. These are covered not as discrete topics but as examples of how language, culture, and social norms work together for successful communication. The audience will have ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss the materials.
