About this event

Workshop Description

Phonological (sound) awareness is a person's awareness of the sounds, rhythms, and intonations they use when speaking and when listening to the speech of others.

In this practice-based workshop, Dr. Robin Barr will lead participants through a series of discovery activities and mini-lectures aimed at increasing teachers' sound awareness for the purpose of English language teaching.

This Level 2 workshop is open to Level 1 certified teachers and is recommended to those who have completed Color Vowel Yoga, a Level 2 workshop. For more information about levels of training, visit
