|Sounds fun! Playing with Sounds in the English Language Classroom Link to recording of presentation
Susan Hillyard holds a B.Ed. from Warwick University (U.K.) in Dramatic Arts and Sociology and has worked as a classroom teacher, a Head, or a teacher trainer in eleven countries, using drama for education and language learning.She has taught at two major teacher training colleges in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she is currently based. She is the former Educational Advisor for The Performers Theatre and an educational consultant travelling to six or seven countries each year.
She has co-authored a Resource Book for Teachers “Global Issues” for OUP, and has authored and taught an online course: From Learning Creatively to Teaching Creatively.
In Argentina she’s the driving force behind the provision of English language teaching in special schools, shanty town schools, hospital schools, orphanages and home visits to students with severe and terminal illnesses.
This workshop is based on the philosophy of “Confidence First, Fluency Second and Accuracy Third”. It emphasises active learning in ELT and offers a series of activities for helping students to play with English sounds in a practical way leading to more confident use of the voice and ultimately to better pronunciation. It is based on the idea that teachers do not often work sufficiently effectively with the oral skills particularly the sounds of English.
