Helping students improve their pronunciation for the IELTS Speaking test
Thursday 21st March at 11am GMT
About the webinar
Pronunciation forms 25% of a candidate’s score for the IELTS Speaking test, yet this important speaking sub-skill often takes a back seat on IELTS courses. In this webinar, we will consider the aspects of pronunciation that are assessed in the IELTS Speaking test and possible pronunciation issues that candidates may face. We will then discuss ways of helping our students improve their pronunciation for the IELTS Speaking test and see an example of a practical classroom activity focusing on pronunciation for IELTS using materials from the MINDSET for IELTS series.
