Inhoud vak

We will set goals for the English accent that you wish to develop both
at a professional and at a personal level. We will analyse the 10 most
common difficulties in English pronunciation and the effects that these
difficulties may (inadvertently) have on the intelligibility and
credibility of your accent. We will also take account of the role of
pronunciation features in the construction of identity. You will do
exercises, practise ear-training and be given tools that help you
analyse English pronunciation features. You will work on features in
your own English accent accordingly.
