教育目的/授業目標  The overall objectives of this course are to improve delivery of spoken English in both conversation and presentation contexts. The course addresses speech quality at both word (segmental) and sentence (supra-segmental) levels. Word level aspects include effective pronunciation of specific sounds (phonemes) and syllable stress. Sentence level aspects include areas such as rhythm, intonation, sentence-level stress, speed, and pausing. This course will also introduce commonly-used bio-related vocabulary that is typically challenging for students to articulate.
指導方針 Active student participation will be expected in a range of pair-work and small group activities. During the course students will also be expected to rehearse, and record mini-presentations. There is also a self-study(homework) component to this course with students being expected to complete at least 1hour/lesson outside class.
