What you should know about pronunciation work in a course

One of the most important principles to integrate into a course is the fact that we learn languages by using them in messages. This is basically the 4 skills: learning a language by reading/listening to messages and speaking/writing messages. Through listening and speaking we practice receptive and productive phonology. There doesn’t need to be too much deliberate/overate attention given to pronunciation work, especially if the pronunciation isn’t very different from your own language. This video will not only explain this principle in more depth, but you’ll also get an idea for how to create your own material to help with pronunciation work.
