Pronunciation Autonomy: Word Stress
Are you good at identifying syllables in English? Do you sometimes have trouble finding the correct stress in English words? Join us and discover the easy world of English Word Stress. In this workshop, you will analyze some word stress patterns and develop a "relaxing" way to learn, practice, and even teach word stress. You will understand why Brazilians tend to misplace stress in certain words and how to correct them. Participants will be made aware of the natural stress pattern of English, some lexical stress patterns, and several stress-imposing suffixes. In order to help you improve your pronunciation during the session, you will need a good camera and a microphone.
Pronunciation Challenge - mastering words and patterns that are tricky to pronounce
There are several English words we Brazilians mispronounce in a way that is hard to understand. Join us in this workshop, find out which words they are, and check if you pronounce them correctly! Participants will be engaged in identifying each problem, why it happens, and how to correct it. The session will focus on spelling-pronunciation patterns and teaching techniques which will help you accurately predict and even teach the right sounds. At the end of the session, you will sound more advanced, more elegant, and clearer to all speakers of English. In order to help you improve your pronunciation during the session, you will need a good camera and a microphone.
Pronouncing Grammar: past, present, plural, possessive, etc - how to master them
This workshop is perfect for those who feel that their grammar is better than their pronunciation. We will start with the basics: how to pronounce the Simple Past (ED and some particular irregular verbs which are usually mispronounced). Then we will move on to S/ES/'s (Simple Present, Plural, and Possessive Case) and see how important it is to pronounce them correctly so that those words are not confused with other similar words. Finally, we will check some other grammar patterns (modals and auxiliary verbs) and how to pronounce them naturally in both formal and informal contexts (connected speech). In order to help you improve your pronunciation during the session, you will need a good camera and microphone.
Enrolment requirement: Students must have at least level B2 of English.
