The ELT Podcast Episode 4 by British Side Teacher Training on Mixcloud
Episode Four of the podcast is about teaching pronunciation. Phil Keegan talks to pronunciation expert Jonathan Marks about why teaching pronunciation is important. There are also a few practical tips on how to incorporate pronunciation work into your everyday teaching.
Jonathan Marks lives in Poland and works as a teacher trainer, author and translator. His books include English Pronunciation in Use - Elementary (CUP) and The Book of Pronunciation (Delta Publishing). He is also the co-author of the long-defunct but still highly-regarded and much sought-after Inside Teaching (Macmillan), and has contributed to coursebooks and to bilingual and monolingual dictionaries. He is a regular contributor to the Macmillan Dictionary Blog. Apart from pronunciation, he is particularly interested in vocabulary, language history and comparative linguistics. He is a lifelong railway enthusiast, and enjoys travelling by train - especially to places with good scenery, interesting old architecture, opportunities for walking and for drinking good beer and/or wine.
