In the evening of July 19th 2016, VGAC members and their friends and children had enjoyable time when joining the Pronunciation workshop presented by Dr Nancy Lane – VGAC Organizational Advisor and supported by three Australian volunteers.
Dr Nancy identified common problems of Vietnamese when pronouncing English and helped the participants practice pronouncing some difficult sounds (sh, th, oo…).
Participants also had chances to talk in groups and spend time with native speakers to correct pronunciation mistakes.
Thank you RMIT International University for sponsoring the venue.
