In this course, participants will develop skills and strategies to work on their pronunciation both in and out of class. The goal is not to eliminate a foreign accent, but instead to help participants develop a command of spoken English that enables them to convey and understand intended meanings and attitudes. Individual sounds, sound combinations, stress, vowel reduction, linking, rhythm, intonation, focus, pauses, and conversational speech will be addressed. Content can be adapted to suit the groups’ needs.
