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.

HASH(0xb2fbb2f4) out of 5 stars Excellent listening and supplemental pronunciation text July 5 2006
By fairleft - Published on
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.
