Essential Phonetics for English Language Teachers

Essential Phonetics for English Language Teachers is for teachers who are unsure of their skills in and their approach to pronunciation teaching, or who have regarded articulatory phonetics as obscure theory up to now. This booklet fulfils its title, dispensing with academic detail and lengthy practice sections. Indeed, as the sounds of phonemes and more can be accessed on the Internet no audio component is included. The focus is on the ability to recognize and correct errors, particularly those that can’t be corrected by ‘listen and repeat’ instruction alone. Notable innovations include vowel charts for both British and American accents (plus references to other varieties of English), custom-designed vocal tract diagrams and examples of simple, effective boardwork. Common learner difficulties and tips on teaching activities feature regularly.
