(placeholder)

About This Course

CA 103 is the fourth course in the curriculum which focuses on English pronunciation.  CA 103 is a continuation of CA 102: Interemediate Pronunciation, Part 1.   The format is the same.  There are 12 lessons and a final which means the entire course consists of 13 one-hour sessions.  Each lessons covers monosyllabic words that start with a particular letter of the English alphabet, starting start with the letter L.   Words that start with the letters Q and U are not included because there're not that many words in the English language that start with these two letters.  The last lesson covers words that start with the letter  Z.

Each lesson contains additional instructions to the teacher or parent who is teaching their students or children how to pronounce English words correctly.   Instructor notes are printed in a small blue font, and are not intended to be read by students.  Words and sentences intended for students are printed in bold black font.
