Accurate English: A Complete Course in Pronunciation - (BOOK + AUDIO)

 
312

Learning to speak a foreign language fluently and without an accent isn’t easy. In most educational systems, students spend many years studying grammatical rules, but they don’t get much of the chance to speak. Arriving in a new county can be a frustrating experience. Although, they may be able to read and write very well, they often that they can’t understand what the people say to them. English is especially difficult. Because pronunciation of words is not clearly shown by how they are written. But the major problem is being able to listen, think and respond in another language at a natural speed. This takes time and practice.
