Abstract:

If you are looking for information or activities concerning the problematic
/r-l/ phonemic distinction in English, look elsewhere. If, instead, you are
interested in finding out about the pronunciation problems that afflict
Brazilian learners of English, then you will find this book a goldmine.
Pronunciation Instruction for Brazilian Learners: Student's Book was
designed with a specific target of learners in mind: Brazilian Portuguese
speakers learning English as a foreign language. 

What is unique about Pronunciation Instruction for Brazilian Learners is
its approach to teaching pronunciation. It brings together current
developments in Applied Linguistics, insights from recent empirical studies
on the acquisition of English phonology, and effective practices in
pronunciation instruction, within a communicative approach to teaching
foreign languages. Filled with clear and succinct explanations about
difficult and hard-to-perceive sounds in English, the book provides
eye-pleasing and practical activities that cover the different steps
involved in the mastery of a foreign sound system, going from the
mechanical articulation of a problematic sound to its ultimate use in an
authentic communicative interaction. This is an important contribution to
the field of pronunciation teaching and, accordingly, a must-read for
anyone interested in studying and teaching the pronunciation of English as
a second or foreign language.
