In this American English pronunciation workshop, you will improve your pronunciation, fluency, and rate of speech with the ultimate goal of sounding more American. Are people having trouble understanding your accent? Are you struggling with the pronunciation of words like “live” and “leave” / or “wash” and “watch” / or “thirteen” and “thirty”? Are you having trouble understanding native speakers? You are not alone!
This class is designed to improve your telephone skills and your oral fluency through a series of activities and games specially designed by BCAE ESL instructors and students. You will also learn how grammar and pronunciation are related; this will help you with your past tense pronunciation, and your future tense blending.
In addition, you will be introduced to a number of websites and drills that will help you to practice outside of the classroom setting. The goal of this class is to build your confidence and pin-point your weaknesses so you can achieve more native-like fluency.
