Seminar für Englische Philologie

American English:

This course aims to assist you in acquiring an American accent when speaking English. The course should be taken either simultaneously with or after the introductory phonetics course (American English), as there will be some theoretical and much practical overlap between the courses. These courses are limited to a maximum of 15 students per class.

British English:

The main aim of this course is to work on your problem areas in pronunciation and get you to sound roughly like a native-speaker of British English. There is a sign-up list for this course on the StudIP and the courses are limited to a max. of 12 students per class. You must have done the introductory lectures on phonetics and phonology (British English), or be doing them, to take part. You cannot do the course without the Reader and the course book. Please also see the course descriptions on the StudIP website and in the Reader for more details.
