Great for self study or private tutoring
I bought this book recently to specifically teach pronunciation to ESL students, and I have to say it's great. I don't have to prepare any extra exercises, because the book already has plenty, and the listening activities are simple, yet straight to the point. The explanations are easy to understand, even for beginner students of ESL, and the comparison approach the author uses is great for foreign students, when it comes to association of sounds in their language to English language sounds. For anyone interested in learning pronunciation, I definitely recommend this book. Please note that the pronunciation taught is British, but as long as the teacher is aware of the differences and teaches the student the American English alternative, this should not be an issue.
Package has lots of cds, lots of content and nice organization of topics, explanations and clear ad of course cds have a great hig definition sound
Excellent and enjoyable
So far the book is excellent. Easy to follow and enjoyable. The exercises are short and straight to the point and the best part is the recording
I love this book because it has not only explanations and audio CDs, but also a lot of exercises for extra practice(e.g. grouping together words with the same vowel sound or finding the odd one out).
