English Pronunciation for Career Success **English Pronunciation Open House**

Feb 6, 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. RSVP to ace.info@mec.cuny.edu Your success is dependent on your ability to communicate. Those for whom English is a second language often know English grammar and vocabulary well, but are held back by problems in intonation and pronunciation. Every language, like a song, has its own “melody” and rhythm. When you speak English with the melody of your primary language, your pronunciation doesn’t sound right to the listener and you may not be understood. This 5 week course, taught by a licensed speech pathologist, will teach you the melody and rhythm of American English, strengthen your pronunciation and improve your personal and business communication skills. We will start by helping you become aware of the rhythm and intonation of your native language and the languages of others in the class. As you learn to hear the melody of your own language, you will also be learning to hear and use the melody of American English. You will find yourself able to correct your pronunciation on your own, with far less effort than traditional accent reduction approaches. This beginning course uses the Ariber Accent Reduction B.E.A.T.™ program. Each participant will receive a complete, individual evaluation of their American English accent. We will also take the next step in pronunciation, working on improved articulation of one or two vowel sounds selected based on needs identified in the individual evaluations. Individuals with significantly accented speech may benefit from further individualized instruction, which is not included in this course. Instructor Rochel Lieberman, MA CCC-SLP, is a Speech Language Pathologist, a professor of language development, and the founder and director of Ariber Speech.
