Youcanalsouseit for extrapracticeofsoundsthat aredifficult for you.First,find out which units aremostimportantfor you.Todo this:- If possible,checkyour mothertonguein the Lisrof likelyerrors(seewebsite:http://r,r"wwcambridge.org/elt/elt_projectpage.asp?id=2500905)andmakea printout of that part of thelist.- Do at leastoneof theDiagnosticTests(seepagesix-xi).If you areworkingalone,doTestA.TestB needsthe helpof a teacher,nativespeakeror near-nativespeaker.If you areworkingwith a teacher,he/shewill decidewhetheryou do thetests.Decidewhetheryou wantto:- work firston the mostimportantunits for you,or- beginat the beginningandworkthroughthebook,spendingmoretime on themostimportantunitsfor you.Youcanchooseto worksimultaneouslyon SectionA (vowels)andSectionB (consonants).Youcanalsodo the sevenreviewunits.Read,MaktngEnglishsoundsbeforebeginningeachsection(seepagesI-2, 79-80).This introducessomeessentialvocabulary.Symbolsusedin thebook:meansthis materialis recorded.meansthe answersarein the Key(seepages186-224).meansthisexerciseis suitablefor a groupor pair of students.If you area studentworkingalone,you couldtry it by usingyour imagination,e.g.by imagininganotherstudent.meansusethemask(seepagevi).meansvisitthewebsiteto practise.Othersymbolsused:Intonation is shownwith arrows:Themainword stressis shovrrnin bold,e.g.pronunciation,student.Sentencestressis shownwith underlining,e.g.Sentencestressis shournwith underlining, or sometimeswith big and small circles:OoOoOoooOo(Sentencestressis shorvrmwith underli4ing).
  4. 4. vl Phonetic symbols used in this book are the International PhoneticAlphabet (IPA)(the contenrs page shows all the symbols used).you canuse this book without knowing these symbols, but it is useful to learnthem so that you can check the pronunciation of new words in adictionary. The Cambridge Aduanced Learners Dictionary uses thesesymbols.. In most units (but not in Unit l), Exercise2 Minimal palrs givesyoupractice in contrasting two sounds in words and sentences.If you donthave one of the two sounds in your language,practising the pairs ofsounds can sometimes help you to hear - and then produce - theEnglish sound. Dialogues are recorded.You can backtrack on the CD to repeat them asmany times asyou want. If you dont like backtracking, listen to thedialogue after you have done the dialogue tasks.TheMaskThere are two ways in which you can use the mask (which you cut out frompage I85):I At the beginning of the minimal pair exerclsesHere,you are instructedto use the mask in most units after Unit l. The mask symbol at thebeginning of the exerciseindicates usethe mask.you can start theminimal pair practice with the mask covering the written words, justIooking at the pictures and listening to the pair sounds (first in wordsand then in sentences).This will help you to focus on really listening tothe sounds first. After you have listened for the first time, you canbacktrack on the CD to listen again and repeat.2 Extra practice of dfficult sounds You can also use the mask, for exampleat the end of a unit, to enjoy extra practice of sounds that are difficult foryou. Here,your task with the mask is to try to produce the contrastingsounds correctly while trying to remember the words and sentences.(e.g.I Mask on - listen and repeat. 2 Mask off - read aloud. 3 Mask on _remember and say aloud. 4 Mask off- read aloud to check.)Otherwaysof havingextrapracticeof difficultsoundsI Make playrng cardsby photocopying rhe minimal pair charts (e.g.fourcopies) and cutting out the pairs.you can then play some of the cardgames described in the review units. If working alone, play pick up pairs,Unit 7, page27 or Pick up samesounds,Unit 14, page52.2 Check on the website(http: / i www.cambridge.org/ elt/ elt_projectpage.asp?id=2500905)to seeif there is any extra practice material for this sound.

  7. 7. txDTAGNOSTICTESTSAll students should do TestA.TestB requires the help of a teacher,native speakeror near-native speakerof English.The tests are not to give you a mark. They may help you to find out whichsounds and other aspectsof English pronunciation could be the mostdifficult for you. You should also check this in the llsf of likely errors orthewebsite:http://wwM.cambridge.org/elt/elt_projectpage.asp?id=2500905.TESTASectionI Sounddiscriminationaz Do not stop the recording or repeat. In each item you will hear two words.Sometimes the two words are the same.Sometimes they have one soundthat is different.

  9. 9. xiIESTB(Note:This test requires the help of a teachel native speaker,or near-native speakerof English.)Ask the student to read each test item, and record the grading on the resultsheet (pagexii).A studentsperformance can be recorded, or the student can be askedtorepeat an item as many times as necessaryto record a result,The reasonsfor mispronunciation are many, and some may be causedby readingdifficulty. To check this, say the mispronounced word correctly and ask thestudent to repeat it. If the student can then say it correctly, add the symbolR to your grading on that item, indicating that tfie student can pronouncethis sound but may have difficulty when reading it.Suggestedsyrnbolsfor grading: / no difficultywith this soundX difficulty with this soundR may have difficulty reading this soundShoppinglist1 some cheese(cheap cheese);some tea (Chinesetea)2 titty biscuits; four fish3 ten eggs(big eggs)4 jam; apples and oranges;a cabbage5 ten tomatoes (largetomatoes)6 five kilos ofveal (verygoodveal)7 some strong string (long string)8 four forks (small forks); spoons; cups; small paper plates9 some good sugar;milk; coffee;a cake10 pick up Iudesblue shoesat the shoe shop; two kilos of brown rice; agrapefruit1l nuts; honey; half a dozen hot buns12 one lemon; nine brolrm onions; flowers for the house13 some paper for my mothers letters; collect Grandfathersleather jacketfrom the cleaners14 a girls shirt and skirt (sizethirteen); cold drinks (dont get dry ginger);some good bread15 eight small cakesand paper plates; some sausagesfor supper16 some yellow rosesfor your sister17 white wine (sweetwine); some lce18 beer for Bob (buy it from the pub near here)19 some shampoo for Claireshair; some pears20 some tins of New Zealand peas, or frozen beans21 fresh English fish from the fish shop22 atoy for the little boy (a blue or yellow ball)23 something for Mr Smith (its his birthday on Thursday)24 a small cheap television for the garage
