Overview of English Pronunciation for International Faculty

Friday, September 30, 2016
11:15am – 1:10pm

Storrs Campus
ROWE 318

Do you sometimes feel like you need some help with your English pronunciation, but don’t know where to start? It is not unusual for some students to negatively evaluate courses when they have trouble understanding the instructor’s pronunciation, regardless of the actual quality of the teaching itself. In addition, differences in intonation can cause a speaker to sound boring or not interested in his or her subject matter. In this session, we will go over some common pronunciation issues involving individual sounds, stress, and intonation, to help international faculty and TAs identify areas of their spoken English that could be improved for clarity. We will also go over resources offered by CETL specifically targeted towards international instructors.
