Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


Applying multimodal Conversation Analysis to Danish primary school EFL classroom interaction, we investigate the multimodal resources one teacher uses in teaching English prosody. The teacher uses multimodal resources to draw the pupils’ attention to English stress patterns including distinct emphasis on isolated linguistic items, reformulations, and gestures.
