Diverse accents & Identity | Presencial |

Sobre o evento
Accents are an essential part of people’s identity in a language. Still, oftentimes students (and teachers) do not feel proud of their own accents. In this course, we will promote a reflection about the concepts of Global Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca and their contributions to the teaching of pronunciation. Then, we will discuss the connection between one’s accent and their own identity; the processes that shape one’s identity in a new language; the influence of models on the media and course materials; and reflect about how we can work on the appreciation of learners’ identity to promote equality in learning. We will do some activities in the course that can be adapted to any lesson and also give suggestions of projects and materials to make sure everyone feels their accent is valued.
