Course at a Glance
Talk to Phonetics
Revisiting the relation between English Pronunciation and Transcription
This course is ideally suitable for teachers of English, professionals, advanced students and Translators. The main objective is to gain control over the production of English sounds and its correspondence to the British English Phonetic Transcription, and ultimately boost your pronunciation of English. Why not letting a good transcription reflect good sounds!!!
You always wanted to know more about the authors behind the books you use in Phonology? Do you want to talk to them? Ask the writer questions about their books?
If the answer is …: Yes !!!You are in the right place. The course will offer you the possibility of interviewing the writers of the books you will use during the course . This is an amazing opportunity. Let`s get down to the nitty-gritty of phonology with the most amazing phoneticians
The Whats, Hows, and Whys
The approach promoted in the course is a ‘learning-by-doing’ methodology. Participants will deal with classroom tasks such as:
- Working with authentic material such as songs, film excerpts, and short engaging conversations to introduce Spanish difficulties at acquiring vowels, consonants, connected speech and intonation,
- Understanding the IPA alphabet at transcribing natural speech oral texts,
- Boosting oral pronunciation while relating transcription to oral production
- Making recordings and getting weekly feedback on recorded material
- Reading at first sight,
- Meeting the international well known phoneticians
All the wide range of hands-on activities mentioned above will train participants to improve oral production of vowels, consonants and intonation patterns by transcribing the sounds of English .
The course will last 5 weeks, starting online as from Saturday 20th February 2021 to March 27th 2021. Participants will take Zoom lessons with their tutors for 6 consecutive Saturdays from 10.30 to 12.00 PM. There will be weekly assignments that will help participants to make progress in English phonetics.
Giving feedback will be the key issue in this workshop. To that extent, tutors will open an asynchronous platform with access to the recordings of the sessions and assignments to do.
