Next Haptic Pronunciation Teaching Webinars! (10/11/19 and 10/12/19)

The next of the bi-monthly "double webinars" are set to go. You need to do Webinar I before you do Webinar II, but feel free to just take the first one, which covers the basics.

The webinars are highly experiential, participatory and enjoyable. You'll need a hands free set up, preferably projected on a TV screen, laptop or iPad of some kind, positioned at eye level.  Wireless headsets or no headset at all are best, but headsets with a long cord are adequate, since you have to stand up and "dance" on several occasions! The 90 minute sessions end with a 15 minute Q and A.

The $25 USD fee for each webinar includes
  • Worksheets
  • Temporary access to the webinar recording
  • Model videos online after the webinar. 
Enrolment is limited to 30 participants in each webinar. Reserve your place now at:
