Description

Practise Your Pronunciation

This is a self-study book you can use on your own or with a partner. Teachers can use it in a class to supplement pronunciation activities.

It is suitable for students of English at all levels who want to improve their pronunciation.

You can follow the text and listen to – and copy – the voices in the recordings.

After each sound, word or sentence, there is time on the recording to repeat what you hear. You can pause the recording to practise the dialogues and longer texts.

We recommend turning off Full Justification and Auto-hyphenation to make the text easier to read. On iPad – go to Settings > iBooks and turn off Full Justification and Auto-hyphenation.
