Test Your English Pronunciation book will provide you with more than 60 tests to improve your English pronunciation.
Test Your Pronunciation is part of the popular Test Your series devised by Peter Watcyn-Jones. It features 60 motivating tests to practise the key areas of English pronunciation, such as identifying vowels and consonants, looking at the relationship between sounds and spelling, and using word and phrase stress correctly.
The following points are the main features of this useful book.
If you want to improve your pronunciation and to understand native English-speakers more easily, you will find the tests in this book very helpful.
The book tests eight main pronunciation areas:
Before deciding which areas are most useful for you, decide what your aim is. Do you simply want people to understand you better? Or do you want to sound as much like a native speaker as possible?
All language students will need to work on areas 1 and 2, because these are the building blocks of all spoken language. Listen out particularly for how vowel sounds may differ in length as well as quality. If you want to improve your writing as well as listening, the tests listed in area 2 will help. They show that there are, in fact, rules governing the relationship between sounds and spelling. If you have problems with area 3, you will find it difficult to make yourself understood by native speakers of English, and working on these tests will help you communicate.
Within area 4, concentrate at first on the tests up to Test 50; you may find 51, 52, 58 and 59 more difficult, but these will help you sound more like a native speaker. If this is your aim, or if you need to understand fast speech, then try the tests listed in areas 5 and 6. Area 7 will help you work out the pronunciation of words when you look them up in a dictionary. Area 8 will help you wherever you meet numbers, and in your professional use of English.
You can check your answers in the Answers section at the back of the book. Many of the tests also have tips with information and ideas to help you improve your performance. Don’t forget to read these tips: they contain a lot of useful information.
When using this book, don’t feel that you always have to have it open in front of you. You could try just listening to the CD, maybe with your eyes closed. The more you listen, the more the sounds, stress patterns and intonation of English will become familiar to you. And the easier the tests will become.
Some tests in this book (especially the ones called Odd one out and Grouping rhyming words) include unusual vocabulary that will not be familiar to you. You don’t need to know the meaning of these words to complete the test, and can always look them up in a dictionary afterwards.
