What you’ll learn

    Essentials/fundamentals of Accent-Reduction using multimedia

About course

Favorably and extensively reviewed and proven to be effective by students, the accent-reduction and/or speech synthesis program developed from dissertation research using multi-media methods. The instructor has taught this subject for over eight years to public and private causes, as library, individuals, and language schools. The emphasis is on an ecological approximation of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates. The goal is to develop a balanced, systematic voice/accent profile based on lesson/MP3 recordings using digital audio monitoring software. Students obtain a repository of audio files during each lesson to be used for actively evaluating individual expression while waiting in line, traffic, and during breaks. The course is configurable according to the following respective or interchangeable options: 1. Study with instructor asynchronously by sending those individually collected assets to the instructor via email or cloud link for feedback, revision suggestions, and customization of additional samples to further upgrade accent acquisition. This may also include written feedback related to specific samples and cue points or benchmarks of the transmitted samples in Goldwave or Wavepad for insight into necessary optimization. This option does not require any formal lesson or meeting. 2. Study with instructor in real-time via Zoom.us or related meeting app to collect and cultivate accent and voice recording assets using the same and considerably more upgrade tools and resources. 3. Study more per lecture and presentation than active practice and collection of accent assets in a portfolio: this option or track covers and surveys a wide, varied inventory of topics The course encompasses over 135 pdf and word files, along with multimedia items, to be surveyed. Each option will require some degree of independent study with the video assets, the omni-phrase guide, the accessible samples, and the collection of new, stylistic samples with the software, comparing, contrasting, and upgrading the recordings of voice and accent. I have facilitated learning for diverse age levels, as children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. I have years of experience teaching ESL/English at public and private educational settings, including private school, university, library, and online web-conference. A dedicated PhD for language and E-Learning, I have been affiliated with Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK, and employed at public schools as substitute and consultant.
