CONTENT
Do you feel confident reading and writing English but would like to improve your pronunciation? If so, come get ready for upcoming presentations and oral exams at this afternoon session. Inspired by Eckert and Barry’s The Phonetics and Phonology of English Pronunciation, this workshop will review the basics of producing consonants and vowels, and we will practice some tricky sounds in isolation, guided activities, and free communication. We will also focus on useful strategies and techniques, and you’ll get tips and resources for practicing your pronunciation. Individual feedback and speaking practice will be included. Follow-up will be available at the Language Clinic.

TARGET GROUP
Bachelor’s and master’s level students

COMPETENCY GOALS
