Tutorials
Each participant will receive one individual 30-minute tutorial. The
purpose is for the tutor and participant together to establish the
student's main pronunciation and presentation priorities and identify
remedial and self-study exercises.
At the beginning of the course, tutors will arrange mutually convenient
times with participants for individual tutorials. Once a tutorial has been
arranged (and a room booked), participants should make every effort
to attend as agreed. f you are unable to attend, you should inform your
tutor (or the Course Co-ordinator) as soon as possible. Any tutorial
cancelled less than 24 hours in advance will not be rescheduled.
Homework
The tutor may set short homework exercises to enable participants
to practise pronunciation items covered in the class, or to prepare
for the next class. Participants will also be expected to prepare short
presentations of between 5 and 10 minutes each, which will be filmed
in weeks 2 and 8.
