English Pronunciation Lessons for the Spanish-Speaker.
English pronunciation lessons and exercises for Spanish speakers are presented. The lessons are designed with the phonological characteristics of both the native and target languages in mind. The lessons cover consonants and consonant clusters, vowels and diphthongs, stress and pitch, and rapid speech phonology. A chart is provided which schematicizes a possible order in which to present the various aspects of American English to the Spanish speaking learner. The consonants and vowels are presented simultaneously in a phonologically workable order. Consonant clusters are introduced when each of the component parts has been mastered. Stress and pitch are presented from the beginning of the course, while rapid speech phonology is not introduced until halfway through the lessons. (RW)
