Pronunciation Group: Words

Date and Time


library 384


This series provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars, faculty, and staff with English as an additional language (EAL) to practice their English pronunciation. There is no prerequisite for participation. Participants will meet weekly for a 2-hour session to progress through word-level pronunciation activities in the textbook Clear Speech by Judy Gilbert. Topics include syllables, consonants, vowels and vowel rules, word stress, vowel length and clarity, and word stress patterns.

Participants will be able to use the textbook free of charge within the classroom. However, students who wish to make use of the book outside of the classroom can purchase the book on their own.

Pronunciation Group:Words will end on February 11, followed by the Winter Break February 17-21. There will be no Pronunciation Group session on Tuesday, February 18, during the Winter Break. After the break, Pronunciation Group: Sentences will run February 25-March 24. Register here if you wish to also attend Pronunciation Group: Sentences.
