New Sounds of the English Consonants for Spanish Speakers Learning English (Sonidos Nuevos de las Consonantes Inglesas Para los de Habla Espanola Aprendiendo Ingles).
Nagore, Mary Louise
This book "represents an effort to present in simply and readily understood terms some of the sounds in English that create problems for the Spanish speaker learning English." Each of the 18 chapters teaches a specific consonant through a comparison of the Spanish and English pronunciations, facial diagrams, explanations of articulation, minimal pair drills, words and sentences for practice, and tongue twisters. Some of the more difficult English spelling patterns for Spanish speakers are explained, such as silent "k" before "n." All explanations are given in both Spanish and English including the Introduction and Suggested Teacher Preparation. It is hoped that this text will help the literate Spanish speaker to "understand that his pronunciation problems are related to the ways in which the Spanish and English languages have been pronounced for centuries, and are not a reflection on his intelligence."
