About The Four Books

PronPack 1: Pronunciation Workouts are extended drills focusing on specific areas of English pronunciation.

Pronunciation Poems are rhymes, chants, limericks, raps and song lyrics all written specifically to contain multiple examples of the target pronunciation features. The activities usually begin with an exercise completing or correcting the text and culminate in practising saying or chanting the text out loud.
