SP 7 - American English Sound Structure for the Health Sciences
This course is designed for students majoring in the health sciences (including Nursing) for whom English is not the native language, and who require intensive work in oral communication. Emphasis is on the recognition, discrimination, and production of the individual sounds of English, and transition from classroom practice to real-life situations, as well as the development of acceptable idiomatic speech. The focus of the course is the improvement of communication skills between health science personnel/health care providers and their colleagues, patients, family members, and caregivers. Students are assigned to this course on the basis of a Speech Placement Test, permission of the Speech Department, or referral from the Nursing program.
