Teaching Connected Speech
Date: Sunday, February 18th, 2001 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Speaker: Maurice Jamall, Tokai University
An understanding and working knowledge of connected speech--elisions, liaisons, reductions and weak forms--is essential for understanding English as it is spoken naturally. Language chunks need to be presented in contexts that mirror the way language is used in the real world, and reinforced through language practice. The presenter will provide practical ideas for introducing students to connected speech using examples from a newly published text called Business Listening and Speaking.
