Event Info

We will be starting off the year with a special guest talk on developing fluency in your English speech!

Our speaker will be Dr Michael Burri, Senior Lecturer, School of Education at UoW.

Attaining fluent speech can be challenging for many who speak English as an additional language. The aim of this session is to give English language learners some strategies (e.g., the use of thought groups and
prominence) they can incorporate into their spoken language to improve fluency and overall confidence.

Following the presentation of some
guidelines for the use of these strategies, workshop attendees will be
given opportunities to identify thought groups and prominent parts in
spoken language. These awareness raising activities will form the
platform for interactive role-play scenarios so that attendees can
experience and practice the newly learned strategies.
