Catherine Bunard has been teaching English as an Additional Language to adults for over thirty years... and still finds it hard to pronounce the word "rural" even though she knows exactly how to write it using phonetic symbols.

Catherine has always been interested in phonetics and decided she would share her passion with some of her colleagues at Chisholm through a series of three hands-on workshops. She met some like-minded people who are excited about having a go at creating and using phonetics with their students at various levels and it seems that both teachers and students are having Fun!

Funnetics provides an overview of phonetics for teachers who need a little encouragement in using pronunciation activities with students. This is followed by Funnetic participation in breakout rooms where teachers try out Catherine’s pronunciation activities. Whatever you thought of phonetics before, this is going to be PHON!
