1. To familiarize with the English phonetic alphabet;
2. To familiarize with English stress and intonation patterns
2. To understand the relationship between pronunciation and spelling;
3. To pronounce vowels intelligibly
a) when the student has to demonstrate any vowel individually;
b) when vowels occur in various settings; e.g. stressed/unstressed, before/after/in-between voiced/voiceless consonants;
4. To recognize it when a vowel is unintelligible and to be able to describe how and why it is unintelligible;
5. To pronounce consonants intelligibly
a) when the student has to demonstrate any consonant individually;
b) when a consonant occurs in different positions; e.g. initial,
middle, and ending;
c) when a consonant occurs in a blend; e.g. /dr/, /pl/, /r/, and /nd/.
6. To recognize it when a consonant is unintelligible and to be able to describe how and why it is unintelligible.
7. To familiarize with rules that govern the lengthening (stressed) and shortening (unstressed/weakened) of vowel and consonant sounds in particular (phrasal or sentential) environment and to be able to pronounce them appropriately
In the pronunciation class, English phonetic alphabet and the relationship between pronunciation and spelling will be introduced. The pronunciation of each individual vowel or consonant (singly and in various settings) will be presented, and stress and intonation patterns will be explained. The students will get opportunities to demonstrate how well they can imitate the pronunciation. Through practice, they will become more conscious of their mistakes and better able to monitor their own speech. It is hoped that carryover of pronunciation skills into communication is not left to chance. In addition, how stress, rhythm, and intonation influence the intelligibility of English will be emphasized.
