Pronunciation Workshop with Glamorgan tutors
On Monday 16 December, two researchers from the School of Welsh were invited to run an interactive workshop with Welsh for Adults tutors at the Glamorgan Centre in Trefforest. The main aim of Jonathan Morris and Iwan Rees’s workshop was to improve learners’ pronunciation skills. The tutors also had the opportunity to hear about the findings of the tutors’ latest research, a study of Welsh for Adults tutors’ perspectives on different aspects of pronunciation within the sector, as well as recommendations for the way forward. With approximately 40 tutors present, the discussion was lively and interesting.
According to Jonathan “It was clear that tutors had an interest in the subject, which was wonderful to see”. Iwan added “It was encouraging that Welsh for Adults tutors feel that our research is relevant to their everyday work.”
