This course is designed for faculty and postdoctoral fellows who are eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)* and provides direct instruction in pronunciation to improve communication with native English speakers. The class will focus on identifying and correcting accented speech sounds and other features of spoken language which contribute to misunderstood communication. Participants will be recorded to track improved pronunciation. Class presentations will also be assigned to assess students' progress throughout the semester.
