American English Pronunciation Workshop

Wednesday, March 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

March 20th 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Woods Memorial Church
Severna Park
This workshop is designed for tutors who work with English Language learners (ELL) and would like to help them improve their spoken American English pronunciation. This interactive workshop will improve their ability to understand the place, manner and voicing of articulation for many of the speech sounds of spoken American English, both consonants and vowels.
An explanation will be given of the differences between a letter, and the sounds represented by that letter. Hand mirrors (provided) will be used to provide a visual of the appearance of parts of the mouth when producing speech sounds, and we will practice . Handouts of worksheets for some commonly mispronounced sounds will be provided, as well as a handout of useful websites to use with our students.
Tutor Joan Spring, a speech pathologist, will lead this valuable workshop. Please be sure to RSVP to Jane Seiss at janeseiss@gmail.com or call our office at 410-269-4419 to leave a detailed message.
