Product Description

From the Back Cover

Sound Advice, Second Edition , maintains the comprehensive, skills approach to discrete point listening that has made it an enduring best-seller, with the valuable addition of thoughtprovoking questions to stimulate pair and group discussion. Sound Advice helps students understand rapid, relaxed English, starting at the word and sentence levels and expanding to short conversations. The text/audiocassette combination helps students develop their own strategies for understanding language as it is spoken and exposes them to a variety of listening phenomena essential for comprehension of authentic, natural speech.
New features include:

  • Art-based preview activities that familiarize students with the oftentroublesome aspects of listening comprehension.
  • Contextualized exercises that students can understand and relate to, from school and travel to dining out.
  • Unique chapter review ¿chants¿ that reinforce what students have learned.
  • TOEFL®-style questions that help students prepare for the listening portion of the TOEFL® Test.

Excellent listening and supplemental pronunciation text July 5 2006
By fairleft - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is excellent for topics like linking and ellipsis, and the way unstressed vowels are pronounced as one of our two minimal vowel sounds. It also can be flipped around and used as an outstanding, if not essential, supplement to most pronunciation texts. I'm a biased teacher in that I think pronunciation books tend to over-emphasize sentence stress, which learners can pick up naturally, rather than discrete sounds, which they generally cannot.
