Название: English Pronunciation in Use.
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.
What order shall I do the units in?
It is better if you balance the work that you do from the three sections: first, do a unit from Section A, then a unit from Section B, then a unit from Section C, then another unit from Section A, and so on.
So, for example, you could begin like this:
Unit 1, then Unit 21, then Unit 41, then Unit 2, etc. At the end of each unit, you will find a note telling you where to go next.
If you have problems in hearing the difference between individual sounds in Section A of the book, you will be directed to one of the exercises in Section D4 Sound pairs.
You may want to focus your work more closely. If so, here are more ideas:
• Do the Pronunciation test in Section D. Count your score for each section. If you did specially well in any one of the sections, then you may want to miss the units in that section of the book.
• Look at Secrion D3 Guide for speakers of specific languages. Find your own language (the languages are in alphabetical order). The notes there will tell you which units are less important for speakers of your language and which sound pairs in section EM are recommended.
Do I need to know the phonemic symbols?
It is possible to use this book without knowing phonemic symbols. However, it is useful to learn them because they make it easier to analyse the pronunciation of words. Also, many dictionaries use phonemic symbols to show pronunciation. In Section Dl Introduction to phonemic symbols, you will find a table of the phonemic symbols, plus a set of puzzles to help you learn them.
