    "My pronunciation needed some help, and a friend of mine with impeccable diction, who is also an English teacher, suggested I get a copy of 'Pronunciation Practice Activities.' I found a copy dirt cheap online, practiced the exercises, and lo and behold, my pronunciation improved substantially in just weeks. Fantastic buy if you are a bit of a mush mouth like me (or like I was, before I got the book)."

    "Trying to teach a non native English speaker our language can be difficult. We have so many rules with the way our words are expressed. I found English Phonology and Pronunciation Teaching to be perfect for helping. This really showed how to speak amongst the various diphthongs we have in the language."

    "People today really have bad pronunciation skills. We learn words from reading instead of speaking and so we don't pronounce them correctly. This book teaches you how to properly pronounce English and how to teach it to others. All teachers of young kids should read this."

    "A sound enunciation book for those new to the English language. Being a native Spanish speaker myself, I found the references in this material to be of use when I was just starting out to learn the nuances of the English language. The examples are simple and succinct, with everyday phrases and common occurrences to practice what is being taught to memory with ease."
