Overview
Pronunciation Practice

As the title says, this digital edition provides pronunciation practice. The procedure is simple. Read the words while listening to the recording and pronounce everything as clearly as you can. If you are not satisfied, repeat the process until you are. To listen to the first section, use the audio control bar at the top of the page. For other audio, click on the audio icon.

The first section of the book is the basic lessons (pages 1-70). They practice the discrete sounds of English in the initial, medial, and final positions using sample words. Some of these words are then used in a recorded conversation so that you can hear and practice the melody of the language in natural, everyday speech. After the basic lessons, there are three appendices and a Glossary of Pronunciation Terms. Appendix I suggests expansion activities that will help you practice your  pronunciation working with a partner or small group. The pages may be printed.

Appendix II: Contrasting Pairs (pages 82-108) gives you practice discriminating and producing pairs of sounds which are typically difficult for learners of English. Each page has five activities. They are best done working with a partner. The fourth  activity is digitally interactive. You listen to the first phrase and type in the appropriate matching phrase or response. When you are finished, click on the check icon to check your answers and score.

Appendix III is a game designed to give practice with Syllable Stress (récord vs recórd). It is best played with a partner, but you can play it solitaire. The Matching Chart record sheet and sheets of Syllable Stress Flash Cards are printable so that you can play the game.

Pronunciation Practice can be used by high-beginning to advanced students of English and anyone wanting focused practice for accent reduction. The original paper edition of this book is available as a photocopyable teacher resource with five CDs. This digital edition includes the audio, and with a few exceptions there is no need to print pages. Classes or students working on their own may work through the book from start to finish or use lessons to practice sounds as they are needed.
