About the Book

Do people have a difficult time understanding you when you speak English? Do you become frustrated because you are not correctly understood? In "AMERICAN DICTION FOR NON-NATIVE SPEAKERS" you will learn American diction and how to modify your accent in order to achieve a better command of the spoken language. The book's audio file allows you to hear and practice all the sounds used in American pronunciation. In Series 1 you will learn how to correctly pronounce consonant sounds and how to understand the slight differences between these sounds. You will become familiar with the International Phonetic Alphabet and how it can help you. You will also learn how to produce correct plural and past tense endings as well as learning about syllables, word stress and more! The books include exercises in order to practice your listening skills so that you can begin to recognize the variations in sounds. Series 2 will teach you the vowel sounds used in American diction and other rules of pronunciation (insertion of sounds, deletion of sounds, linking sounds, etc.) with special chapters dedicated to singers, actors, and public speakers whose mother tongue is not English, but who are using English in a professional setting.
