This course is for students wishing to develop and perfect their oral production. The objectives of this course are two-fold:

- To develop an understanding of the principles that govern French phonetics and phonology.
- To put these principles into practice so that students may improve their pronunciation and aural comprehension.

Each class will include systematic work on pronunciation, rhythm and intonation through a wide array of oral exercises (perception and production). The phonetics course is adapted to the students’ mother tongue. Students will also work individually in a virtual language laboratory.
