In Practical Phonetics / Phonetics 2/3 students build on their theoretical knowledge of the sound inventory of English acquired in Descriptive Phonetics / Phonetics 1: Theory and analyse the sound system from the perspective of German learners of English. Students put their theoretical knowledge into practice with regular recordings and analyses of their own readings of texts in English. Students gain an awareness of the range and respective severity of typical deviations from standard British and American English pronunciation. Students identify common pronunciation problems for non-native speakers of English as well as their own individual pronunciation difficulties. Students develop their pronunciation on the basis of constructive feedback. *Es wird empfohlen, im Zuge des Studiums einer Fremdsprache einmal die Übung "Kickstart: Fremdsprachen lernen" (auf UNIVIS unter Sprachenzentrum > Sprachbezogene Zusatzqualifikationen in Erlangen) zu besuchen.*
