This class is designed to help students improve their skills and confidence in spoken English. Students will practice the basic sounds of English as well as work on stress, intonation, rhythm, and linking. They will practice self-assessment, understand how their native language influences their pronunciation in English, and recognize the strengths of their own accents.
Class will be small and friendly (no more than 10 students). Mirrors and recording devices will be used to familiarize students with how their English sounds and the proper pronunciations. The goal of this class is to make students more comfortable speaking in English by reducing native accents which may hinder being understood in public. Students from all countries are welcome – we will learn from each other!
This course is scheduled on an as needed/requested basis.
