This course is designed for non-native English speaking students (ESL) who need to improve their speaking and listening skills to ensure accuracy and confidence in communications for academic success, improved employability, and for increased ease in social situations. There is a systematic review of the English sound system; in addition there is individualized attention to accent reduction. The instructor works with students to help them modify their three of four most serious accent problems. Students also complete a comprehensive series of listening exercises because listening is not only an essential communications skill, but many accent issues are related to listening issues. This course may be recommended for students intending to take ENGL 177 or ENGL 187.
