Aims, contents and method of the course

Building on the knowledge in phonetics and phonology acquired in the Introduction to the Study of Language 1 lecture, 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 more closely to their English or the accent they can identify with most. The course also comprises a compulsory two-hour lab session each week with a student tutor
