Targeting Pronunciation uses an interactive approach and clear explanations to help students communicate effectively in English. It makes pronunciation easy to teach and fun to learn. The text features a diagnostic package for setting individual priorities. Students build independence by improving their ability to self-monitor and self-correct and by completing home assignments for practice beyond the classroom. The Second Edition includes increased coverage of consonants and vowels, enhanced Web activities, additional authentic speech samples, and indexes by chapter and activity type for easy reference.
