Course Content

This course aims to develop students’ listening and pronunciation skills by providing them with the fundamentals of listening and phonetics— vowels, consonants, stress in words, rhythm and intonation-- as well as the usage of phonetic alphabet. Students will be exposed to authentic listening materials; and the course, starting from basic listening and phonetic skills such as discriminating minimal pairs and formulating phonetic transcriptions of problematic sounds in class, will also focus on higher level listening skills and strategies such as note-taking, predicting, extracting information and guessing meaning from context.
