Talk a Lot Foundation Course (2011) is for anybody who needs to better understand how to speak English like a Native Speaker. It will be especially useful for anybody who is studying with Talk a Lot materials (i.e. Elementary Books 1-3 or Intermediate Book 1). The theory studied on this course will enable learners to get a lot more out of any Talk a Lot materials.
The course is suitable for learners from Pre-Intermediate level (CEF B1) to Advanced (CEF C1) - and beyond. It can also be adapted for lower-level learners.
The focus of this course is pronunciation - how we speak. The message of the entire course can be summed up in two words: stress and reduce - learners can improve their pronunciation by stressing the content words in a sentence and reducing the function words - then connecting the syllables together. The aim of the course is to teach learners how to do this.
