Online Course Description
This is a 5-session course, to be taken in sequence. This course will be the prerequisite for all of the other classes that I teach. During the first 5 sessions, the students will learn the basic sounds of American English and the ways in which these sounds are usually spelled. They will learn about how the past tense is pronounced as well as about some adjectives that have a different pronunciation of the -ed ending. The rules for linking will be introduced with an explanation of how this technique increases fluency. The importance of slurring will be discussed, as well. Finally, the short and long sounds of vowels will be emphasized, so that no one will confuse a listener as to whether they want to live here or leave here.
