Level 2 of Pronunciation Group provides an opportunity for graduate students with English as an additional language (EAL) to practice their English pronunciation in a small-group setting. Participants must have attended 7 out of 10 sessions in Level 1 in order to participate in Level 2. Participants will meet twice a week for 10 sessions to progress through sentence-level pronunciation activities in the textbook Clear Speech by Judy Gilbert. Topics include sentence stress, sentence focus, emphasizing content and de-emphasizing structure words, and thought groups.

Participants will be able to use the textbook free of charge within the classroom. However, students who wish to make use of the book outside of the classroom can purchase the book on their own, or can borrow a copy at a rental cost of $40 while registered in Pronunciation Group. No writing can be done in the rental book. When the text is returned at the end of the series (with no marks in it), participants will be reimbursed their $40.  

Level 2 begins October 30 after Level 1 ends.
