CLIC: Speaking skills: Pronunciation Skills

Tue 24 Jan, Tue 31 Jan, ... Tue 7 Mar 2023

Description

This course, which is for non-native speakers, will cover all the main aspects of English pronunciation.

It will take place on Tuesdays (09:00am to 11:00am) and will start online. However, depending on the wishes of the participants, it may be possible to have face-to-face teaching later in the course.

When online, we will meet together for approximately one hour, and then reconvene in smaller groups of three or four, for extra practice, after the Tuesday class. The practice sessions will be 20 minutes per group (groups/times to suit, to be arranged in class).

If you have any questions or would like further information, please email Helen East (hre21@cam.ac.uk).
