The course aims at facilitating the off-line classes. Its contents cover the prosodic characteristics of different types of communicative sentences. To master the prosodic contours of each type is an important endeavor to keep a professional phonetic profile for a future teacher of English or for anybody who would like to sound as/ or close to a native speaker. By training those types of utterances we: 1) role play authentic contexts (interrogating, talking, highly emotional discourses, etc.); 2) practise definite prosodic contours (all terminal tones and different heads).
