Verra' consolidato l'uso dell'International Phonetic Alphabet, meccanismi soprasegmentali - cioè, con particolare riferimento ai fenomeni dello stress, dello stress-timing, e dell'intonazione. Infine, il corso si pone anche un obiettivo pratico, quello di migliorare la pronuncia attraverso la riflessione, l'ascolto, ed esercizi mirati.

Il lettorato inglese 1 fa parte del corso, e la frequenza del lettorato è altamente consigliata.
