This short course will help non-native speakers of English develop a more “listener friendly” pronunciation through practice of clear vowel sounds and the sound patterns in spoken English.

This class is appropriate for students who have not taken a Pronunciation course before and/or need better control of individual sounds and features of English pronunciation. While no formal grades are given, the teacher will provide students with both written and verbal feedback. More

This class is appropriate for students who have already taken Pronunciation and Prosody 1 and/or have control of individual sounds of English pronunciation, but still want to work on improving “listener-friendly” pronunciation. This short course will help non-native speakers of English by working on advanced sound patterns beyond individual sounds or words – what we often call “thought groups”. These include intonation, stress, linking, speech reductions, and rhythm.. Classes include some focused instruction and practice of specific elements of pronunciation, with many chances to practice through hands-on activities. While no formal grades are given, the teacher will provide students with both written and verbal feedback. More
