Using Pronunciation to Get Your Point Across: A workshop for international TAs

In this workshop, you will learn features of North American pronunciation that are important in communicating effectively. By modifying your speech even slightly, your speaking will become much easier to understand. You will learn about pausing and word stress for emphasis, intonation to indicate questions or doubt, and rhythm for sounding more fluent. You will learn tools that will help you hear these features in English and start adding them to your speech.
