***** Excellent Resource
This is the best pronunciation book I’ve seen. The way the book is laid out really makes the phonemic sound system easy to understand both for teachers and language learners. The activities are also excellent. I highly recommend this and the other books in the series.

English Result

Review by: 
Book of the Month
Appeared in: 
EL Gazette

This is an impressive new general English coursebook. Highly practical, it focuses largely on speaking, for production and interaction. The ‘can do’ statements given for each lesson are clear for the students, and the ‘tickline’ at the bottom of each lesson allows them to reflect on and evaluate the class and their achievements. The two-page lesson format makes this book easy to use.

I have used English Result (Elementary) throughout this summer, and find it has many virtues.

English Result Elementary

Review by:

Appeared in: 
IATEFL Voices Issue 211 December 2009

Finding elementary level TEFL resources for adult learners is often challenging. Assuming that learners have taken English lessons previously, core material attracting zero and false beginners is crucial. The colourful pages of English Result Elementary invite both these learner types on a lively journey ….

Pronunciation Games

"Pronunciation Games" is exactly what I hoped it would be. I've been trying to find fun, diverse ways to focus on pronuncation (not just looking at minimal pairs). This fresh approach to pronunciation is appreciated both by the students and myself.

This series is very good for getting kids writing. They find the warm-up exercises interesting and they are well graded to lead towards the actual writing. There is also a good exercise on checking your own writing and correcting for the pupils to do which they love. Colourful and fun. Good value.

English Pronunciation in Use

Review by:

Despite being a key area of English language learning, pronunciation is often given short shrift in English language course books, and teachers often have to create their own materials (if they have the time) or utilise additional resources.

English Pronunciation in Use

Review by: 
Thomas Simon
Appeared in:

English Pronunciation in Use is a new addition to the In Use stable of books that began with the very successful English Grammar in Use. As with all books in the series, this book is designed to be used by the individual learner, & in this case with the intermediate & above learner. You may know the author Mark Hancock, through using his excellent Pronunciation Games.
