Shadowing for the Modern Pronunciation Classroom (TOP-IG)
Prof Dev Meeting/Workshop Interest Group (IG) Event
Shadowing is a versatile language-learning technique that was originally developed by speech pathologists to treat stutter. When shadowing, learners repeat—or “echo”—recorded second-language speech immediately after they hear it. In this webinar, participants will learn about the benefits of shadowing on pronunciation achievement, and especially the potential of using the technique to train prosody (suprasegmentals). They will also become familiar with closely related techniques: repeating and parallel reading, and ways to incorporate all three of these methods into fun, communicative, and student-centered activities for pronunciation classrooms.
