Pronunciation [3 credits]

This course concentrates on the pronunciation problems that Dutch students have when speaking English. We will compare the Dutch and English sound systems and identify the top10 problems for Dutch speakers. You will be invited to record your own speech and to critically evaluate the recording made by one of your fellow students. In addition, you will be required to do practical exercises every week. This includes especially developed on-line pronunciation exercises as well as exercises that help extend your vocabulary. All in all, this course helps you to create an awareness of potential pronunciation problems and trains you in how to avoid them in your own speech.
