for students learning to speak English, by Merle Braithwaite
This practical guide to the pronunciation of English sounds will be particularly useful to teachers in their work with school PUPILS AND students and adults to whom English is a foreign language.
The aim of teaching pronunciation is to achieve what Abercrombie describes as “ comfortable intelligibility – pronunciation which can be understood with little or no conscious effort on the part of the listener”.
English Sounds focuses on:
- The strong relationship between auditory discrimination skills and pronunciation
- the use of a multi-sensory approach to teach phonemes, which cause confusion
- the use of target sounds in spontaneous speech
