New Book – PronPack: Word Recognition for Listeners!

Pronunciation for Listening series

The newest additions to the PronPack family are the books in the Pronunciation for Listening series, which focus on pronunciation as a receptive skill. These books are user-friendly, with short, well-signposted chapters providing maximum accessibility for the busy teacher. The latest book Word Recognition for Listeners focuses on the way individual words sound in context, and conveniently links pronunciation to vocabulary. Meanwhile, the previously published companion volume Connected Speech for Listeners focuses on how words join together in the stream of speech and links pronunciation to grammar. Both books offer practical tips and lesson materials plus a range of support materials here on this website.

Connected Speech for Listeners is available in paperback and ebook formats. The new book, Word Recognition for Listeners is currently available in paperback from Amazon (.com,, .ca, .de, .es, .fr, .it, and will be published as an eBook shortly.
