Cursusdoelen
Students learn about grammatical differences between (academic) English and Dutch; acquire detailed knowledge of articulatory and contrastive phonetics and learn to apply this to their own pronunciation skills; improve their listening comprehension and learn to transcribe sounds using phonetic symbols. Students earn to improve their English grammar, fluency and pronunciation, so as to increase their intelligibility and acceptability by native speaker standards.
Inhoud
This course offers an introduction to the sound system of English (especially phonetics), as well as the grammatical concepts needed for speaking and writing academic English. In addition to training practical grammar, it is designed to help native speakers of Dutch improve their English pronunciation, fluency and listening comprehension in a variety of ways. These closely connected skills will be discussed and practised within the context of articulatory and contrastive phonetics. Students choose either Received Pronunciation or General American English as a pronunciation model.

The Grammar lectures address grammatical concepts and terminology as they are used in English grammar at university level. They also help improve English proficiency by highlighting common mistakes and presenting strategies to avoid them.
The Phonetics & Phonology lectures deal with articulatory and contrastive phonetics, and some of their background in phonological theory and analysis.
In the Pronunciation & Fluency sessions, students learn to improve their English pronunciation by imitating practice drills.
In the Ear Training & Transcription sessions, students learn skills needed for recognising, analysing and transcribing speech sounds.
In the Presentation sessions, students learn to express themselves more fluently and accurately by giving presentations on subjects drawn from phonetics and phonology.
