English Pronunciation, Intonation and Accent Reduction for ARABIC Speakers: Teachers Guide

Click Here :
This is a fresh new approach by an experienced, insightful pronunciation teacher and accent coach. There are no canned ideas copied from internet websites here. Everything is this guide, all the techniques, strategies, teaching tips, and practice exercises, evolved from decades of experience teaching Arabic speaking students of English. They are a result of years of trial and error, collegial conversation (and debate), and extensive research. This guide outlines the interference points between Arabic and English. Some of them are vowel and consonant sounds, and others are related to syllable stress, word stress, and intonation. There is a big difference in the function of vowels in our two languages and the role they play in defining words, stress patterns, rhythm and tone. Once you understand how American English and Arabic sound systems compare, you'll know where the two converge, and diverge. It's the areas of divergence that need attention, and that is what is covered in this guide.TOPICS INCLUDED: Comparing Arabic and English vowel and consonant systemsStrategies for teaching English vowels and consonantsComparing the structure of Arabic and English wordsSoundprints!
