This engaging, succinct text is an introduction to both phonetics and phono logy as applied to the teaching of pronunciation to English language learne rs. Section 1 selectively covers the main areas of phonetics and phonology, without going into any area in more depth than the average English languag e teacher requires or that the average English language teacher trainee can handle. Section 2 focuses on practical issues related to learners and how they learn languages, and what represents good practice in terms of classro om activities for pronunciation-including aspects such as targets, motivati on and priorities. The chapters end with activities to help the reader unde rstand concepts. Section 3 provides innovative sample activities which put into practice the theoretical points covered in the first two sections, ans wers to the various exercises, recommended further reading (both print and non-print), a glossary of technical phonetic terms, and a bibliography of w orks on pronunciation teaching. The text is accompanied by a Companion Webs ite with audio recordings of model pronunciations and audio material relati ng to the activities.
