Busbee, Everette (1998). A small "content course" in English phonology, 53(1), 41-71.
Accordingly, poor listening skills and poor pronunciation among Korean university EFL students suggest a double need for more opportunities to hear English that can be comprehended, as well as a need for instruction in the theory of how English is actually spoken. Because adult EFL students can put their intellect to work to learn English faster than children, an appropriate subject for university EFL students is English phonology emphasizing suprasegmentals, which are receiving increased attention as elements of communication. With this in mind, a series of fifteen 5- to 15-minute lectures was developed for weekly presentation during a semester-long conversation course for high beginners or above.
