Meeting Description:

This Roundtable discussion on pronunciation in assessment of spoken language is sponsored by a Language Learning Roundtable Special Grant. Pronunciation has moved from being a central feature of language teaching and assessment to being largely ignored, but today, pronunciation is again becoming an integral rather than a peripheral part of language teaching and assessment. This conference explores visions of how pronunciation can become more integrated into language teaching learning and into language assessment.

Featured Plenary Speaker:

Pavel Trofimovich, Concordia University
'Teaching second language pronunciation: From the psycholinguistic lab to the language classroom'
