There are many types of listening and speaking activities in the book. Most of the units include word pairs that contrast two sounds. Word pairs are pairs of words, such as night and light, that are the same except for one sound. If your first language does not have one or both of the different sounds in the word pair, practicing the word pairs can help you learn to hear - and produce - the two different sounds.
Pronunciation Pairs is divided into two sections - one on vowels and one on consonants. Each section begins with an introductory unit that shows the basic mouth positions and movements needed to produce the sounds in that section. After the introductory unit, each unit presents a specific sound through a variety of tasks. The tasks move form highly structured practice of the target in connected speech, including guided conversations, games, puzzles, and interactive speaking tasks. There are also eight review units.
