Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Content:
Building on the knowledge in phonetics and phonology acquired in the "Introduction to the Study of Language 1" or "Introduction to English Linguistics" lectures, this course further elaborates the main aspects of English pronunciation at both the segmental and suprasegmental level, and provides ample opportunity for practice. There are courses taking either American or British English as their teaching models. It is recommended that students choose the accent they feel corresponds most closely to their English or the accent they can identify with most.

Aims:
- to improve students' pronunciation
- to improve students’ oral presentation and reading skills
- to improve students' communication skills
- to reinforce students' theoretical background in practical phonetics (including transcription)

Methods:
Communicative language practice based on the discussion of theoretical concepts, presentations

PPOCS 1 comprises a compulsory two-hour Language Lab session each week, for which students must register separately (Sprachlabor zu PPOCS, LV nos 121193, 121194).
