Description: Targeting Pronunciation uses a communicative, interactive approach to help intermediate and advanced ESL students communicate effectively and clearly in English. This up-to-date text makes pronunciation easy to teach and fun to learn. It features a complete diagnostic package for setting individual priorities and goals. Through a variety of engaging listening and speaking activities, partner practice exercises, role plays, and dialogues, students increase their confidence and command of English speech. Home assignments provide practice beyond the classroom to help students become independent by improving their self- monitoring skills and their ability to correct their own errors. The Second Edition includes increased coverage of consonants and vowels, enhanced Web activities, additional authentic speech samples, and indexes by subject and activity type for easy reference. New! Self-quizzes at the end of each chapter reinforce students' understanding of chapter material. Updated! Additional authentic speech samples, including interesting public service announcements, link pronunciation targets to real speakers. Improved! A new chapter organization helps instructors teach pronunciation in a progressive, logical sequence. An array of web activities with audio keyed to each chapter that students use independently to test and expand their grasp of pronunciation features. Join the Chorus and Sing Along activities feature songs, poetry, and chants help students master English speech rhythm and intonation. Talk Times communicative activities, planned by students in the classroom and executed outside, facilitate the transfer of pronunciation targets to real-life situations.
