Pronunciation Workshop That Was Meant to Be

Serendipity is the best word to describe how this exciting event unfolded. At the end of September 2015, the Adult Literacy Coordinator at Medicine Hat College – Brooks Campus ordered English is Stupid, Students are Not for her teachers. We corresponded a bit about challenges for specific language groups and off-the-cuff she asked me to let her know if I was ever speaking in Alberta?


It just so happened I was speaking at TESL Canada at Chateau Lake Louise two weeks later! I booked a flight early enough to spend two days meeting, greeting, teaching and sharing ideas with the teachers, students and volunteers at the Brooks Campus of Medicine Hat College. Shout out to Sandra Armitage for putting this together so quickly. Her we are with some of her students and volunteers. I love it when a plan comes together!
