Have you read the December issue of the EL Gazette yet? There’s a great review of Collins Work on your Accent on page 15!
Collins Work on your Accent helps students soften the influence of their mother tongue when they speak English. Professional accent coaches Sarah and Helen show students how to pronounce each sounds and when to use them. They help students recognize how their particular native language influences their pronunciation in English, and on which sounds to focus in order to improve. Watch Sarah and Helen explain how the book works in this YouTube video!
This splendid book is extremely user-friendly, and one I would strongly recommend as a supplement to speaking courses everywhere. I honestly think I’m going to have so much fun with it over the next few years.
