Date: Thursday, October 29, 2020

Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. CDT (Not sure what time this is in your time zone? Click here to convert it!)

Cost: There is no fee for this training, but your tax-deductible donation will support our tutor training program and literacy learners across Minnesota!

Presenter: Andrea Echelberger (she/her), ESL Training Coordinator, Literacy Minnesota. About Andrea.

Description: It can be challenging to make yourself understood over the phone, even for native English speakers! In this webinar, learn about three different pronunciation features that can be taught and practiced during virtual video instruction. Participants will learn how the three features impact speakers’ intelligibility, and explore activities designed to help learners practice using these features in their daily speech.

CEUs will be emailed to participants after the webinar, typically within 1-2 business days. Webinars are not recorded, but please check literacymn.org/volunteer-trainings for additional sessions.

This workshop meets the Literacy Minnesota Foundations of Remote Instruction Certificate Program requirements. Learn more about the certificate program at https://www.literacymn.org/foundations-of-remote-instruction-certificate-program.
