Inhaltsangabe: If you are looking for information or activities concerning the problematic /r-l/ phonemic distinction in English, look elsewhere. If, instead, you are interested in finding out about the pronunciation problems that afflict Brazilian learners of English, then you will find this book a goldmine. 'Pronunciation Instruction for Brazilian Learners: Student's Book' was designed with a specific target of learners in mind: Brazilian Portuguese speakers learning English as a foreign language. What is unique about 'Pronunciation Instruction for Brazilian Learners' is its approach to teaching pronunciation. It brings together current developments in Applied Linguistics, insights from recent empirical studies on the acquisition of English phonology, and effective practices in pronunciation instruction, within a communicative approach to teaching foreign languages. Filled with clear and succinct explanations about difficult and hard-to-perceive sounds in English, the book provides eye-pleasing and practical activities that cover the different steps involved in the mastery of a foreign sound system, going from the mechanical articulation of a problematic sound to its ultimate use in an authentic communicative interaction. This is an important contribution to the field of pronunciation teaching and, accordingly, a must-read for anyone interested in studying and teaching the pronunciation of English as a second or foreign language.
