Moving Pronunciation, Meaning and Usage from the Dictionary!

Mike Burri, Brian Teaman and I are doing a workshop at the 2011 TRI-TESOL conference this Saturday. From the conference program: "This workshop introduces a haptic-based (movement and touch) set of procedures for helping learners efficiently get pronunciation, meaning and usage information from English learner dictionaries. Included are six techniques that can also be applied to dialogues, connecting pronunciation and vocabulary learning with controlled and then more integrated, spontaneous speaking." If you are in the Des Moines, Washington neighborhood, stop by. Looks to be a very good conference!
