PHRASE BY PHRASE Pronunciation DVDs are designed for non-native speakers of English who wish to make their speech more intelligible. The lessons are presented in a systematically organized learning program. The videos help learners develop auditory sensitivity - you hear sounds and sound patterns better. The exercises allow you to improve accuracy, fluency, and ease in your oral production of English - you speak more clearly and confidently. You'll enjoy interesting stories, lively dialogs, and vivid demonstrations of how to produce sounds.

In the 16 lessons of Phrase by Phrase, you will learn the key characteristics of accent: stress, intonation, reduction, and linking. These characteristics are reinforced and expanded upon throughout the videotape series. These features - called suprasegmentals by linguists - are essential in giving English its distinct rhythm and melody. Stress, rhythm and intonation are also the key factors in making pronunciation intelligible. No matter what your native language is, you will profit from an understanding and mastery of these oral language features. In addition, you will practice all of the American English vowel and consonant groups throughout the learning program.
