ALP Winter Conference
hosted by the American Language Program
Columbia University Faculty House
Saturday, February 25, 2017
9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

NEW YORK – The American Language Program (ALP) is pleased to announce that its Winter Conference will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2017, from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Columbia University’s Faculty House. The theme for this year’s conference is "Integrating Pronunciation into Communicative Activities.”

Students can often pronounce discrete sounds correctly in isolation and in structured practice exercises. However, this correct pronunciation does not always transfer when students are speaking more freely, as they need to do outside of class. The sessions in this conference will focus on how to teach students to integrate the pronunciation points they have learned into less structured practice such as discussions, role plays, and other communicative activities.
