Phonologist charges government to invest in language laboratories
A phonologist and Chief Executive Officer of Knack Communications, Elliot Anunwa, has charged government to invest in language laboratories for public schools to enhance students’ usage of the country’s lingua franca.
Anunwa said this during a workshop targeted at raising transformational communicators and public speakers that would impact their generations positively with quality accent and diction.
While urging participants to carefully explore and develop their potential to boost personal development and businesses, he listed environmental factors, peer pressure and mother- tongue interference, among others, as some of the challenges faced using right sounds.
He urged them to build strong relationships and learn to connect with people instrumental to building great network.
While also advising the participants to learn more from good phonetic books, English speakers and You-tube videos, he added that the group has trained over 1,000 persons, including students, teachers and organisations over the years.
Some of the participants, who spoke with The Guardian said they have learnt how to master sounds and words appropriately. They exclaimed that they were leaving the workshop, more confident, articulate and knowledgeable.
