This is a beginner's guide to English speech. Clear Speech from the Start will help you make every basic sound in English. You will speak more naturally and, therefore, more confidently.
Clear Speech is the best-selling English pronunciation series in the world. This beginner's book is a more recent addition to the Clear Speech lineup. It is aimed at lower-level English speakers who have a hard time making themselves understood.
There are 15 in-depth units as well as a review unit. They cover every aspect of beginner English pronunciation:
- English vowels;
- vowel rules;
- linking words;
- stop sounds;
- continuing sounds; and
- final sounds.
In addition to helping your spoken output, Clear Speech will help you with your listening skills. The more you understand how English pronunciation works, the more you will be able to understand spoken English.
Clear Speech focuses on each sound in the context of a word or thought group, so you don't need to sound like an American or a British person. You can continue to sound like yourself, but a clearer version of yourself.
