This introductory/intermediate course provides intensive work with English vowel and consonant sounds and features of English phrasing, stress, rhythm, and intonation. Contextualized practice has two goals: to enable students to modify pronunciation patterns toward more intelligible speech and improved oral communication; and to guide students in developing self-monitoring strategies for continued modification of speech after formal course work ends.

The course work is basically group-oriented, but includes attention to individual needs through self-study programming and small-group sessions and the use of video filming and critiquing. The emphasis is on speech production, speech performance, sound/spelling correspondences, and discriminating listening skills.
