Language researcher Jami Kim is looking for native speakers of American English to participate in a study of pronunciation training in Korean. Five free pronunciation classes will be offered for one hour per week every Tuesday, 3:00–4:00 p.m., from January 25 to February 22, 2011, in the Center for Korean Studies conference room. Participants will receive a textbook and accompanying CD for the class.
Participants will take a pre-test and a post-test for about an hour per person (there is some flexibility in test time). The test results will be used to help develop effective educational methods for second-language learners of Korean. Upon successful completion, participants will receive a $20 gift certificate to either Yogurtland or Starbucks.
To participate, contact Jami Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org) by e-mail or telephone (808) 753‑1250.
Jong-mi (Jami) Kim holds a Ph.D. in linguistics, majoring in Korean phonology. She is currently a visiting scholar at the Center for Korean Studies and is a professor of English language and literature at Kangwon National University in Korea.
