ELSO 6210 - Improving Pronunciation


     
Fall, spring (weeks 1-7 and 8-15 both semesters). 1.5 credits. S/U grades only.

N. Lindberg, M. Myers.

When we think about pronunciation, we often think about individual sounds, but other features of speech are often more important for making oneself understood. These features, such as pausing, intonation and stress, make up the melody of English. By the end of this course, students will increase their awareness of and control over the aspects of spoken English that most affect intelligibility, gain confidence for being understood by listeners, and develop strategies for more self-directed learning beyond the course.
