Features of English phonetics, phonology, stress, and intonation will be drawn on to enrich instruction in best practices for teaching and learning pronunciation in a TEFL environment.

Going beyond discrete sounds, this course will focus on the suprasegmental aspects of English pronunciation for both formal and informal situations such as:

  • stress

  • rhythm

  • pitch

  • intonation patterns

Specific techniques for accent reduction, plus important information on body language for clear communication in English, will be presented. Lastly, the course will emphasize the integration of pronunication instruction and practice in all types of lessons.
