Elementary Oral English for Speakers of Cantonese: Teacher's Guide for Pronunciation Practice.
Terrell, Anne; And Others
This guide for pronunciation practice is intended primarily for adult speakers of Cantonese who need to speak English in order to understand and be understood in a job outside the Cantonese-speaking community. It is not designed for the advanced student. This document provides a contrastive analysis between the sound systems of English and Cantonese, focusing on the sentence as a whole and then on vowel and consonant sounds. Suggestions are made for the application of contrastive analysis in teaching English, specifically in each of these three areas. A glossary of terms and a bibliography are provided. A discussion of lessons in English sounds follows, with an explanation of a teaching alphabet and general instructions for using sound drills. (VM)
