DESCRIPTION

This course has 24 lessons and two exams, which means the entire course consists of 12 one-hour sessions.  Most lessons cover monosyllabic words that start with a particular letter of the English alphabet.  For example, Lesson 1 covers words that start with the letter A.   Each lesson contains additional instructions to the teacher or parent (the Instructor) 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.

PREQUISITES

Students who take this course should have completed PRO1: English Pronunciation Level 1 or have equivalent knowledge of English.  All students must be able to understand simple English sentences and ask simple questions in English.

This course is not recommended for Thai children who cannot read simple English sentences or who cannot speak rudimentary English.  Children who are unable to recognize the English alphabet or who speak simple English sentences should take one of the introductory courses.  Adults who wish to improve their English pronunciation, including Thai teachers, should take CA.201: Pronunciation and Vocabulary for Thai Adults


STRUCTURE

Students should be given a printed copy of the lesson at the beginning of each class session.  Notebooks must be provided by the students' parents.  Students are expected to pronounce all target words in each lesson correctly enough for an English language speech recognition app on a cell phone (iPhone or Android) to recognize it.  Students will be given a final exam with 40 target words after completing all lessons.
