Students review the English vowel and consonant sound systems and selected features of phrasing, stress, rhythm, and intonation. Activities include a variety of speaking exercises and tasks such as informal, personal-topic talks, story-telling narratives, process or instructional talks, problem-solution talks, informational and persuasive talks or small group panel presentations. Tutorials and individual self-study work in the Language Resource Center (LRC) lab supplement class sessions.
