This webinar was designed to support teachers working with young learners. The presenter explored techniques, strategies, and resources for developing phonological awareness in children, and provide practical examples of classroom activities including games, chants, rhymes, and songs.
Phonology is one of the more neglected areas of language teaching although it is fundamental to spoken communication. Childhood is a key period for assimilating a whole host of phonological features since young learners are especially receptive to unfamiliar sounds. The ability to form sounds is also linked to skills such as listening – if you can say it, you can hear it. This webinar explored techniques, strategies, and resources for developing phonological awareness in children. These will include games, communicative activities, chants, rhymes, and songs.
