Throughout the course, contrasts between the Spanish and English sound systems will be pointed out in order to make students aware of differences and help them improve their own pronunciation. The course will conclude with an introduction to Spanish suprasegmentals (syllable, stress, and intonation) and to major differences between Peninsular and American dialects.
