Description

Are you a faculty member, instructor, or graduate student teaching at USC? Would accent reduction help you communicate more effectively with your students and colleagues?
Join us for a two hour session designed to assist non-native speakers of English in accent reduction. The session will include a brief overview of the elements of pronunciation, including difficult sounds, stress, rhythm, and intonation. Specific practice techniques for addressing the most common pronunciation problems will be shared, along with a list of resources available for further self-study. Join us for this interactive workshop.
