Description:
       This course is designed specifically for learning pronunciation, and based on a
three-fold division, which seems to provide a more practical and useful way of.
understanding English sound system. The three divisions are:
       Level 1: Sounds
       Level 2: Words
       Level 3: Connected speech
       This course is designed to work out articulation of English speech sounds and
correct intonation skills. It presupposes getting preliminary knowledge of key features of
the English phonetic structure, which includes information on phonetic characteristics of
the English vowels and consonants, speech organs, stress and intonation patterns as
well as English rhythm. In studying individual sounds and words we do not lose sight of
the fact that the main purpose is the promotion of fluent speech.




Objective:

This is a practical course whose aims are mainly practical:
   • to be able to pronounce isolated sounds and to know how to treat them in
       different phonetic contexts (i.e. phonetic phenomena of various types);
   • to master the pronunciation norms, word stress and rhythm;
   • to learn how to prevent and correct all sorts of pronunciation mistakes.

        class and in-class assignments, test readings, quizes and written tests. You will be graded
        according to the organization and delivery of your speech. Each module includes the
        following grading:
            1) Attendance and participation_________________________10%
            2) Theoretical material________________________________30%
            3) Practical material__________________________________35%

     2. Attendance and participation are vital and will be used to determine a portion of
        your grade. Your promptness is appreciated and noted. If you are late up to 15
        minutes, please enter quietly. If you are late more than 15 minutes, please do not
        enter. Classroom conduct is to be professional, courteous and supportive. Cell

     5. Attendance and participation are vital and will be used to determine a portion of
       your grade. Your promptness is appreciated and noted. If you are late up to 15
       minutes, please enter quietly. If you are late more than 15 minutes, please do not
       enter. Classroom conduct is to be professional, courteous and supportive. Cell
       phones, CD players and other equipment are to be turned off when you come to
       class. Disruptive behavior will reduce grade by 10%. Poor participation in class
