ESL 090B Clarity & Accuracy in English Pronunciation

This workshop course is for low-to-mid level nonnative English speakers, and it is designed to help students improve their pronunciation in everyday speaking and in formal presentations. It focuses on three main areas of language proficiency: (a) pronouncing consonants and vowels clearly; (b) learning to produce the stress patterns and rhythm of English accurately and fluently; and (c) using communicative strategies to manage communicative breakdown.  Students are required to complete voiceboards, self-analyses/evaluations, and oral presentations as well as short listening assignments as homework.
