ENG 106 American English Phonetics for the ESL Student
ENG 106 American English Phonetics for the ESL Student (3 Credits)
This is a non-technical course for the student whose first language is not English. It deals with the sounds of English and its sound patterns (stress, rhythm, pitch, and intonation). Students practice words and conversational phrases, listen to tapes, record their own voices, and give talks in class. The goal is to enable them to be readily understood when they speak English, and to understand the spoken English they hear.
Prerequisite: placement/ advisement.
