Pronunciation for Effective Communication

  • Online delivery
  • eClass

This course sup­ports Eng­lish lan­guage learn­ers who want to devel­op their pro­nun­ci­a­tion skills for suc­cess­ful inter­per­son­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion. This course will focus on increas­ing speech intel­li­gi­bil­i­ty, and will draw stu­dents’ atten­tion to ele­ments of pro­nun­ci­a­tion that can lead to mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Stu­dents will devel­op an aware­ness of their own indi­vid­ual strengths and weak­ness­es in pro­nun­ci­a­tion, and will build strate­gies for expand­ing their pro­nun­ci­a­tion skills beyond the classroom.

Syn­chro­nous online learning, eClass

In synchronous online courses, students move through the course material at the same pace as their peers. These courses also provide learners with pre-scheduled online lectures that have the instructor and students interacting at the same time. All components of this type of course are accessible through eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool. for­mat details
