IATEFL Pronunciation SIG-NATECLA London conference - Accentuate: bringing pronunciation to the fore

Adrian Underhill: 'Proprioception in learning new sounds, words and connected speech'

Pronunciation and speaking are physical activities. Proprioception is the internal awareness of the position of parts of the body and the effort employed in a movement. Adrian Underhill looks at how to use proprioception as a guiding principle in language learning, how to enable learners to connect with the muscles that make new sounds, and how to use ‘easy’ sounds to find ‘difficult’ ones.
