Pronunciation Group: Words

Offered in the winter semester, Pronunciation Group: Words provides an opportunity for University of Guelph graduate students, post-doctoral students, visiting scholars/researchers, faculty, and staff  with English as an additional language (EAL) to practice their English pronunciation. There is no prerequisite for participation. Participants will meet twice a week for a total of 10 hours to progress through word-level pronunciation activities in the textbook Clear Speech by Judy Gilbert. Topics include syllables, consonants, vowels and vowel rules, word stress, vowel length and clarity, and word stress patterns.

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.

Note: This series was titled Level 1 in the past.

The follow-up session, Sentences, will begin on January 31. You can register for Sentences here.
