FREN 6514 - Applied Phonetics      

This course is for students wishing to develop and perfect their oral production.
The objectives of this course are two-folds:
1. To develop an understanding of the principles that govern French language and:
2. To put these principles into practice in order that students may improve their pronunciation and aural comprehension.
The phonetics courses are adapted to the mother tongue of the students.
Each class will include systematic work on pronunciation, rhythm and intonation through a wide array of oral exercises (discrimination and repetition).
Students will also work individually in a virtual language laboratory.

N.B.: Initially, first-year graduate students will be placed in this course on the basis of their scores on the oral interview; although any remaining seats will be opened to other interested students, they should normally register in 6612.
