ESL* 149: ESL Pronunciation Workshop

3 Credits
The focus of this course is American English pronunciation and its application in oral discourse. Topics of study include the following: consonant and vowel sounds; stress, rhythm and intonation patterns of words, phrases and sentences, articulation patterns of assimilation, deletion, and insertion. Students will also learn about the differences in spelling and speech. Through intensive listening and pronunciation practice, students will add linguistic patterns reflective of American English and will learn how to monitor their own speech in order to communicate effectively in academic and informal settings.
