Follow up next class - Thursday 28th

Dear all

This is to confirm that you will have the second follow up next Thursday 28th. The test will include the three simple rising tones: Take-off, low Bounce  & High Bounce. I don't know whether I will be there or not (probably not, since I still need to go through some tests to see what is wrong!) but Virginia is going to listen to you, mainly to give you some feedback. I need to make a point here of the extra effort that Virginia is putting into this so that you don´t fall behind with the contents of the course and thank her al lot. You should too!! So come for appointments and preactise a lot!!
Regards
Monica

No classes tomorrow 26/4

Dear all
I will not be able to deliver lessons tomorrow and I was counting on Virginia to take over the lessons, but she has just told me that she is not feeling well, so classes tomorrow will be suspended. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please spread the news.
See you next week

Welcome to our Lab II Blog!!


Hi everyone!!!

Welcome to our Blog!! I have uploaded the most basic material for you to get started. This is definitely not the end of it, since I'll be uploading more and more material as we go along with our lessons. Here are some tips on how to go about with this blog:

- On your left you'll see the subscription box. Remember to enter your e-mail address so that you get a message every time I post something new. I will be posting announcements every time I upload something new.

- On your right you will find several boxes. One of them is the Phonetic Typewriter online, which will allow you to type  ɪn fənetɪk skrɪpt. The other boxes contain material  we are going to use in class (Audio and Video) . 

In the Readings and Theory section I have also uploaded some material you can read about nucleus placement, or example.
So you have all the material you need to start working. So off to work!!!

Harry Potter: Audio

Hi everyone
I apologize for the dalay. On the right hand side column you will find the mp3 audio files for Harry Potter in two versions: full and exploded. I have modified the exploded version removing parts where there are nioses or sounds that will not be useful to your practice.
Work hard on the section we analyzed last class. Next class we´ll finish the rest. Come on!! One last effort, one last push and the baby is out!!
