English Pronunciation & Fluency Workshop: Final -ed/-es Sound Variations

March 12, 2019 - 3:00pm

Final -ed/-es Variations

Tue. / 3:00-4:00pmĀ / COB 205

How we pronounce -ed, -s, and -es at the ends of words in English depends on the sound that comes before. In this workshop, we'll review four easy rules to help you predict the final sound for both -es and -ed endings; then, we'll practice predicting and making these sounds in words and dialogs as native speakers would. You'll even know why "speakers" sounds like "speakerz!"

This workshop is especially for non-native speakers of English who would like to improve their pronunciation. All campus members and family members are welcome.
