Summary

In the first part of this speech training manual, we provide practical exercises for difficult speech patterns, such as word endings, consonant clusters, schwa, and strong and weak forms of words. The second part is devoted to connected speech patterns. The third part deals with natural flow of speech, intonation, sentence stress, and onomatopoeia. The fourth part covers how to make your speech interesting to listen to using power, pitch, pace, and pause. At the end of the book, we provide useful vowel and consonant comparisons and difficult to pronounce London stations and place names. The book contains words, word pairs, colloquial expressions, and idioms, sentences, dialogues, prose passages, and poetry.
