4.0 out of 5 stars Great for both teaching and self-study 8 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
This is a book that I feel as if I've been using for years. The truth is that until a couple of years ago there was only one, English Pronunciation in Use, which has now become the Intermediate book of a series of three. I haven't used the Elementary and used what became the Intermediate for several years before getting hold of the Advanced version.

As with others in the series, this book is laid out like many traditional grammar books are. It is not a 'handbook' for teachers, but a 'do' book for students which can be used both with and independently of a teacher; each unit has a page of explanation and a page of exercises ' whilst this isn't ever going to be enough, with the accompanying audio the committed student has plenty to work on. There are 5 audio CDs and answers that accompany it (essential for self-study), and the book is clearly and well laid out.

Part of my criticism of the Intermediate book is that much of the language is too simple. The phonetic chart, for example, is of the visual type ' is for apple', '': is for car', which patronises adult learners, particularly those already working in the target language. I have never understood why again and again publishers equate lower levels of linguistic ability to immaturity and childishness. Equally the Advanced version of this book sometimes uses grammatical structures which are unnecessarily complex. This is a pronunciation book, only, after all. However, the latter is a much lesser evil.

The book itself is split into five sections. The first 'getting started' is a great introduction for self-study, though trainers will probably skip to the meat of the text.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE 1 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent program but BEWARE! The software was developed in 2006 and will not run on the latest Mac computers.One hopes Cambridge University Press will update it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 11 Nov 2013
By Lenanb
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I believe this book is a foundation for all learners of advanced English. Well structured, good vocabulary used for exercises. I found that other pronunciation teaching materials are based on this book. So I do recommend it for self study!
