Students will learn how to hear, see and feel the difference between their pronunciation and the non regional dialect/career speech they are learning. Students will learn the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) a critical component to accent reduction, creating a Standard American sound, and mastering dialects. Students will be able to transcribe any script, monologue, presentation into phonetics and be able to read, write, and pronounce the dialect simultaneously. This course is a must for anyone wishing to work in the American market and an asset to anyone wishing to improve their speech and presentation skills.
