Synopsis

Designed to help non-native speakers of English learn to speak clear English that everyone will understand, professional accent coaches Sarah and Helen will show students how to pronounce each sound and when to use them. Sarah and Helen will help students recognize why their native language makes them mispronounce certain sounds and which sounds they will therefore need to work on. 

Suitable for self-study or classroom use, the book features:

36 units on the main consonant and vowel sounds in English
"What am I doing wrong?" section looks at mistakes students are most likely to be making based on their native language
Advice on rhythm, stress and pitch
Videos, illustrations and photos demonstrating the correct positions to produce accurate sounds
A DVD-ROM with video and audio clips providing clear native speaker model pronunciation
Extra practice sessions concentrating on the most problematic sounds
