Guest event: English pronunciation, RUG Language Centre

May 30, 2023

A huge range of people need to be able to speak English in today’s globalised world. This means that you’ll need to understand, and be understandable to, other non-native speakers. In this course, you’ll find out which pronunciation features are important for mutual understanding.

In exercises and videos, you will practise English sounds and stresses, and learn about other learners’ accents. By the end of the course, you will have improved your English pronunciation so you will feel confident about speaking English in different contexts. You’ll have a greater understanding of some of the rules of English pronunciation and how they can differ. As well as looking at elements such as vowels, consonants and other features, you’ll also examine different English accents.
