Product Description

Review

'Pronuciation Tasks … covers all aspects of English pronunciation, teaching skills for effective communication … The author has proved that teaching good pronunciation can be interesting, entertaining and effective.' Practical English Teacher, Vol 14 No 4, 1994

'… the layout is clear and attractive, with every teaching spread illustrated in some way. Learners … are provided with practice through a far wider variety of task types than is common in many pronunciation materials.' Modern English Teacher, Vol 3, No 2, 1994

'This is an eminently practical approach, and by and large it probably succeeds in making the book accessible to everyone while giving those who believe in phonetics some support to build on. Overall, it is a lively book built on solid phonetic principles which many language teachers will find extremely valuable.' Speak Out, 1995

4.0 out of 5 stars Towards competence 13 April 2004
Format:Paperback
One of the major problems with teaching pronumciation for tutors is that their awareness of different vowel sounds is often minimal, making the construction of materials time-intensive.
This book provides specific activities for a LARGE number of sounds, which enables the book to guide the tutor. All students should be realised that some of these are going to be staightforward for you, and others will be really difficult to perfect.
Selection of modules can be useful for shorter courses:take a look at this site for example: [...]
All in all some good things here, and a useful progression, remember the hard work is on the sounds not just gettting the answers. Practise and get corrections and you should find this book useful!
The tutor's book can appear a little daunting at first, as the activites are closely packed, but as you realise each unit is for a complete session you can relax a little:

PUTTING more into the tutors book with fuller examples and extension materials would be an improvement.
