Understanding English Pronunciation uses an easy-to-follow format to introduce and practise the features of pronunciation that are important for intelligible communication in English.

The material is suitable for adolescent and adult learners of English as it presents learning activities and exercises through a variety of interesting topics. Each unit examines and provides practice with a particular feature of English pronunciation,such as word stress, stress within sentences, pausing, linking and intonation.

It is recommended for private study (as the answers to all exercises are included) or as a class course book for pronunciation analysis and practice.
