IPA is very good for young kids, teenagers, and even adults to start off pronouncing words. In fact, it forms a good foundation. How good are you in uttering words that show high and low levels of intonation and  word stress? Are you a “flat” tone speaker? Do people laugh at you when you tend to stress words wrongly?

Do want to speak like the Queen of England? If you do, this course will help you!

The IPA aids us with three important domains: place of articulation, the manner of articulation, and voicing.

However, we need to know the underlining basics. When we make sounds, we have to some manipulations: move the structure of our mouth, tongue, teeth, and throat. That is why we can produce different sounds by just manipulating our mouth, tongue, teeth, and throat to various places to bring about some kind of blockage or interference in the airflow.

The courses below will help you a lot.

(A) IPA ELEMENTARY (IPA-1)

Who takes this course?

  • This course is for beginners or elementary students who want to improve their English pronunciation. The book used in this course suits students who may want to work on their own, but preferably with teachers’ assistance.
  • This course is also for new students who have never learned or spoken English before and may want to learn pronunciation from scratch as they may find very difficult to read and speak basic English words.

 

(B) IPA INTERMEDIATE (IPA-2)

Who takes this course?

  • This course has been designed to help students recognize and pronounce English sounds. The basic premise behind it is that pronunciation material should be meaningful and easily understood.
  • Students who have completed IPA elementary or have some basic knowledge of phonetics
  • Students who want to learn more about IPA because it significantly allows them and everyone, not just linguists, to learn the pronunciation of an utterance- no matter what language is used.
  • Students who want to understand IPA symbols. IPA has one phoneme (symbol) per sound. The complete IPA table will include all the phonemes for all known sounds in every language. The IPA is not based on the sound system of any one language. For that reason, students may want to generally require some training in phonetics and may, later on, learn how to transcribe. This kind of knowledge is very essential to be obtained.
  •  Students, who want to understand how teaching dyslexic students, are helped by IPA and what intonation is all about. Apart from the pronunciation of the speech sounds themselves, this is another important aspect of phonetics that is often neglected in foreign language learning and teaching intonation. Both learners and teachers often forget that intonation carries special meaning, and expresses the speakers’ emotions and attitudes.
