Название: English Pronunciation in Use - Intermediate.

Автор: Mark Hancock.


English Pronunciation in Use is a comprehensive reference and practice book for learners of intermediate level and above and can be used by individual learners working alone, or in class. The book focuses on pronunciation for listening as well as speaking and includes both receptive and productive practice. There are 60 easy-to use units with key pronunciation points presented on the left-hand page with a range of exercises on the facing right-hand page. All units are supported with audio material which is available in cassette or CD format. The audio material uses a clear model of a standard British accent for presentation and repetition exercises. In receptive exercises different accents used to give learners the opportunity to listen to a range of English accents. There is a useful reference section including phonemic symbols and sound pairs, a self-diagnostic test, a guide for speakers of specific languages and glossary.

Although English Pronunciation in Use has been written so that it can be used for self-study, it will work equally well in a class situation. In a classroom context, the learners can get immediate guidance and feedback from the teacher. Also, they can practice some of the dialogues and other exercises in pairs. You can direct students with particular pronunciation difficulties to do specific units on their own.
In order to simplify the jargon in the book, many of the terms you may be familiar with are not used. For example, the term initial consonant cluster is not used. The unit on initial consonant clusters is called Unit 24 Oh, no snow!: Consonants at the start of syllables. The following is an explanation of how the book is organized, ending with the map of contents described in phonological terms.
Section A aims to cover the sounds of English and their main spellings. The units are organized by letters rather than sounds. The intention is that this would be a more intuitive route in for non-specialist users. At the same time, this organization helps to highlight sound-spelling regularities in English.
