Three Saturdays: 21st Jan, 28th Jan, and 4th Feb 2023.
This workshop is a continuation of the previous event. On this occasion, the number of participants will be limited to six people. Participants will be enrolling in all three 90-minute workshops held on three different dates. This short and concise course has been specifically designed to help students master the fundamentals of British English pronunciation.
Sign up via the Eventbrite link below.
Session 01: The basic sounds and tools (Saturday 21st January 15:00~16:30)
We’ll start with the tools to help us achieve natural British English pronunciation: the monophthong chart and the International Phonetic Alphabet.
These tools will help us accurately identify the target sounds of British English pronunciation. We’ll also take a look at the physiological aspects. How do we shape the mouth, round the lips, and position the tongue so that we can replicate the sounds just like a native English speaker?
Session 02: Natural rhythm (Saturday 28th January 15:00~16:30)
During the second session, we’ll study the principles of connected speech and syllable stress. Connected speech helps us transition from one sound to another with ease and fluidity. We will take a look at the characteristics that help us achieve this: glottal stops, semi-vowels (glide vowels), and weaker forms.
Session 03: Applying what we have learned (Saturday 4th February 15:00~16:30)
Each participant will read out a script prepared in advance and given feedback to work on. The script should be no more than 200 words and include vocabulary and expressions that they use regularly.
Each workshop is 90 minutes long and the number of participants will be limited to six people. After each workshop, participants are welcome to join me at a nearby coffee shop where we will discuss our progress in an informal setting. Enrollment in the online course materials is also highly recommended (purchased separately).
