A Cup of Coffee with TESOL Experts: Teaching Pronunciation Without IPA

Published on: Dec 18, 2020

This video series, "A Cup of Coffee with TESOL Experts," is produced by instructors and participants in the TESOL Certificate: Developing an Online Teaching Program.

Participants vote for a question of the week that will be discussed in the video. Then the instructor hosts a video discussion with one participant and an expert in the field to help them answer the question. It is an informal conversation among colleagues, and their hope is to strengthen their professional networks and build communities of practice.

This week’s question

How to teach sound discrimination and sound production with visual aids without teaching IPA to beginner students?
