ILP 101: The PESL Certification Course

This is the complete course in PESL methodology and procedures.

The Compton PESL program is a research-based method of teaching non-native and regional American English speakers how to produce the pronunciation and intonation patterns of American English as it is spoken by most English speakers in the United States. It is a highly-structured approach and prepares instructors to offer instructional programs which enable clients to achieve personal and professional goals.

This certification course will provide you with a thorough training in the design and application of a systematic approach to clearer, more accurate pronunciation of American English. At the completion of this training activity, you will be able to design a customized PESL course for any individual who speaks American English that is significantly influenced by the phonological and supra-segmental patterns of another language, or by the patterns and influences of a regional North American dialect. You will also be able to conduct training sessions for individuals or small groups, analyze and interpret pronunciation patterns, provide measurable rates of change and improvement, and create or expand a business offering by marketing your training services. Students of this course will be introduced to traditional face-to-face training methods as well as internet-based options for assessment, service delivery, and progress tracking.
