Cursusdoelen

  • to improve their academic writing

Inhoud
This course approaches English grammar and pronunciation from both a prescriptive and a descriptive point of view. We will discuss grammar and pronunciation from a modern-day prescriptive perspective, which will enable students to improve their pronunciation and grammar proficiency, as well as their academic writing skills. The descriptive side of the course will introduce students to the grammatical variation found in different varieties of English and to accent variation within a World Englishes framework. Students will also learn how English grammar and pronunciation have developed over time and how this is related to modern-day variation in accent and grammar.  

Note: Students who have already learnt a variety of North American English will be allocated to a separate group dedicated to the teaching of General American. These students should buy Accepted American English (which teaches General American pronunciation) instead of Sounding Better (which teaches British Received Pronunciation). This coursebook can be ordered from www.walvaboek.nl
