Practical Words. Practical Pronunciation.
Have some problems with people not understanding what you say?
Or, occasionally, do you find that some words are not so easy to pronounce?
Or do you just want to have a slightly better accent?
Designed for those who have to speak with foreigners, or native speakers, on a regular basis, this guide has been built around an easy-to-follow method showing how to pronounce words correctly, and lists many of the common words that cause problems for all levels of students.
Based on first-hand experience, the words in this guide have been selected because of the problems
they cause for ESL students, and these words have been compiled into two main sections --
"Everyday Words", and "Business, Medical, and Science Words".
Other lists include "Days of the Week", and "Major Numbers".
The pronunciation model with each word will show you how to pronounce all of the words in the book, including the stress, or intonation.
There are over 1,200 examples, which will give you all the practice you will want.
And eventually, you will understand the method and the system, and you will automatically (and correctly) use it, and pronounce almost every word you need to say.
