Is this English?
You bet it is--this is what English often sounds like in everyday life--and now students can understand it, too through this user-friendly listening program!
* 30 chapters with comprehension questions
* 10 tests with answer keys
* conversations - practical and entertaining
The 30 humorously illustrated units tackle the most common reduced forms such as wanna, gonna, and gotta. Each chapter opens with a conversation (dialogue) on a "hip" topic from the Internet to bungee jumping. Students listen to the conversation spoken with careful, slow pronunciation. They contrast this pronunciation with the same segment spoken with relaxed, fast speech that uses target reduced forms.
Ten review tests appear at the back and at the end of the audio program.
