The Clear Choice
Clear Speech from the Start helps beginning students make significant strides in their ability to understand and communicate with others. Like Clear Speech Third Edition, it concentrates on teaching students the rhythm and intonation of English. It also focuses attention on individual speech sounds that function as important grammar cues. New spelling rules, specifically adapted for second-language learners, help learners guess how printed words should be pronounced.
To avoid burdening beginning students with lengthy verbal descriptions, Clear Speech from the Start presents pronunciation features through kinesthetic exercises and visual and auditory modeling, thus making them accessible to all learners.
