Have you always wanted to improve your pronunciation and be able to communicate more effectively in English? Now’s your chance. Inspired by Eckert and Barry’s The Phonetics and Phonology of English Pronunciation, this three-part workshop series will cover the basics of English vowels and consonants and how they are articulated. after looking at individual sounds in isolation and in sample words, we will practice using these in guided activities and free communication. We will also focus on useful strategies and techniques, and students will get tips and resources for practicing their pronunciation. Individual feedback and speaking practice will be included. Follow-up will be available at the language Clinic.

Bachelor’s and master’s students

Stundents will

  • improve their understanding of how specific sounds in English are articulated;
  • practice specific sounds in isolation and in context; and
  • become aware of specific sounds they need to work on and resources to help them do this.
