The course is specially designed for teachers who need to pass on their English language knowledge and skills to our children, pillars of tomorrow.

A small portion of the course will be theory and the rest will be practical, starting with an initial assessment of students’ accents, and then practising the concepts and ideas presented and evaluating sample recordings and students’ own accents. Detailed drilling (vowel and consonant sounds, tongue twisters and long words) will be a necessary part of the course.

Much of the time will be spent evaluating participants’ own accents and providing remedial coaching, and the class size is smaller to allow for more individual attention per student.

The first 12 hours of the course covers:

  • The components of accent: rhythm, pitch (intonation and tone), stress, dialect.
  • Pronunciation: the 44 phonemes of British English, flow, common issues for Chinese learners of English, finding correct pronunciations.
  • British vs American English.
  • Image and professionalism.

The rest of the course covers:

  • Detailed examination of vowel and consonant sounds and letter combinations.
  • An introduction to emphasis and modulation.
  • Intonation.
  • An awareness of regional accents.
