A Native American speaker may never ask these questions, but a second language speaker of English may ask them constantly. LISTEN-SPEAK: Ease in Communication for Second Language Speakers of English is written to answer these and many other questions a second language speaker has. LISTEN-SPEAK is recommended for students on the intermediate ESL level and above. LISTEN-SPEAK is a comprehensive text/workbook that provides a structured, yet flexible, phonological program for second language speakers, focusing on:

  • Developing self confidence in speaking standard American English
  • Sharpening listening skills
  • Improving speech intelligibility: the ability to use appropriate sound, stress, and intonation
  • Acquiring proficiency in self-monitoring techniques

LISTEN-SPEAK is divided into five parts which provide information on:

  • The overall speech mechanism and International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA)
  • Stress Patterns
  • Consonants
  • Vowels
  • Diphthongs
