Teaching Spanish Pronunciation Praxis Project Report

Barkanyi, Zsuzsanna (2021). Teaching Spanish Pronunciation Praxis Project Report. The Open University.

Abstract

Pronunciation is active not only when speaking aloud, but when reading, listening, writing or even remembering events or numbers. It also has a strong impact on language learners’ self-esteem. In the field of Spanish language teaching, however, the persistence of certain myths related to the teaching of pronunciation has contributed to this feature not receiving much attention. The aims of the present project are to identify Spanish tutors’ professional development needs in the area of pronunciation teaching through the evaluation of an open educational resource, a five-week course on teaching Spanish pronunciation and as a result, adjust our syllabi to systematically incorporate pronunciation teaching into our modules.
