Course Overview

This course improves your pronunciation by focusing on difficult vowels and consonants with special emphasis on stress and intonation. Students can study from 6 weeks to 1 year without repeating materials.

English pronunciation can be very challenging. Our Pronunciation course helps students master the sounds of Canadian English. Students learn to identify and feel the mouth position used for each sound, and to use stress, intonation, linking and other pronunciation skills during real-life communication exercises.

Requirements:

  • Have proven English proficiency of at least a Canadian Language Benchmark of 2+ (upper beginner / lower intermediate level).

Before registering for a course students will need to provide proof of English proficiency. This can be done by providing a valid IELTS, TOEFL, CLBPT or CELPIP score or by taking LCC’s English Assessment.
