This is a pretty good line up to give anybody a general introduction to what haptic pronunciation work is about. If you like it, do join us for our annual "Hapticians" networking session on Saturday, 10-11:30 in the Exhibition area. We'll be planning TESOL 2015 agenda and August 2014, 1-week AH-EPS training in Vancouver.
