In the afternoon, we went to Museum Twentse Welle. Back in the DesignLab, we had a typical Dutch meal: 1,5 hours of all-you-can-eat fries with snacks (kroket, frikandel, bamischijf, nasischijf, kaassoufle, you name it)!
Kristiina Jokinen talking about eye gaze in human-human and human-robot interactions (August 1st)! Anton Nijholt’s talk was about computational humor (August 5th)!
The Academic English Clinic will continue on Tuesday (tomorrow) at 4pm in the Connect room. Everyone is welcome!
At our last meeting, everyone made a short presentation which we recorded.
We also looked at the pronunciation of the 21 (yes! 21) vowel sounds in English, using English File’s pronunciation website,
also available as an Android/iOS app
We also looked briefly at linking or liaison of sounds in speech. Good online resources are available on Rachel’s English (Youtube)
Homework was to go through recorded talk and mark any parts that may not be good English.
