The Clear Choice
Clear Speech Third Edition is a highly successful and innovative pronunciation text for intermediate to high-intermediate students of English. It focuses on those features of English pronunciation that contribute the most to intelligibility—rhythm, stress, and intonation—as well as on individual speech sounds that carry important grammatical meaning, such as the plural "s" for nouns and past-tense "d" for verbs.

Teaching Pronunciation: Seven Essential Concepts
This new edition provides learners with visual representations of important pronunciation features, such as voicing and syllable length. It also includes a greater emphasis on listening recognition, expanded coverage of vowel sounds, and a new appendix with additional exercises for students from different language backgrounds and advanced exercises for higher-level classes. The Student's Book contains an audio CD, so students can practice many of the exercises on their own.
