Welcome to the Winter 2012 Term

On January 7, Language ETC welcomed volunteers to the Winter 2012 term with an orientation and a training workshop. The workshop, on teaching pronunciation, was led by Kathryn McDonnell, a former LETC volunteer with a master’s in TESOL who now teaches in area universities. It got a great response from all of us present. For the benefit of those who couldn’t be there, the handout from the session is available from Ashley, Steve, or Lee.

    Thanks, Kathy, for the fantastic workshop this past Saturday! My favorite part was the description of the importance of syllable stress. Teaching students a new vocabulary word means teaching them what syllables are stressed and unstressed!

  2. Great recap – thanks for posting! I am looking forward to trying the rubber band exercise soon…
