In collaboration with another teacher, I developed a syllabus and materials for the Korean KAIST students at the Fischer College of Business at OSU.


This course was developed to meet the growing needs and interest of upper level students in the area of pronunciation. Essentially, it is a class in which the teacher acts as a pronunciation coach and in which full and active student participation is required. Materials were drawn from “English Literature” that was written to be spoken, for example, speeches and modern poetry and plays. On the whole, the course has been popular and successful both with teachers and students. In addition to teaching the course, I have also coordinated multiple sections.
