About the Workshop
Penn's English Language Programs is offering a workshop series on pronunciation and presenting in English. The series is recommended for international Masters, PhD, and Post-Doc students and will include five 2-hour workshops.
In these workshops, you will:
- Make your intended meaning clearer with accurate segmental pronunciation
- Improve word and sentence stress, linking, and intonation to enhance pronunciation
- Increase clarity of presentational language and delivery
- Improve self-monitoring of your language for accuracy
As the series will build on skills, students should plan to attend all workshops in the series.
