Accent Modification

This course is designed to support students studying for degrees in translation, interpretation, or teaching English who wish to reduce the influence of their dominant language on their pronunciation of American English. Students address idiosyncrasies in intonation and the pronunciation of contextualized consonants and vowels through both class and individualized activities. An important component of the class is on-going assessment, which is used to direct and track students’ progress in modifying the influence of their first language on their production of English.
