4 Principles for Teaching English Pronunciation to Adults

If you've ever taught English to children, you know how remarkable it is--they absorb everything, and acquire language quickly and naturally. But teaching adults requires a different pedagogical approach: their brains constantly analyze, synthesize, and relate everything new to something they already know. It's how our minds organize new information. This is our great strength and also a bit of a problem, when trying to learn a new pronunciation system.

The principles outlined here guide my instructional choices for adult students. They are threaded throughout my pronunciation guides, which you can check out at http://geni.us/2w21 and on my website: AmericanPronunciationCoach.com

I look forward to seeing you there!
