The Focus on Pronunciation books by Linda Lane are excellent coursebooks for the classroom. The layout is clear and logical, and I found the full front drawings of lip position particularly helpful. (I never could make the profile view intelligible to students, but lip position is more than half the battle.) She utilizes the standard techniques, but also has some interesting ideas for activities. The rhythmn and intonation sections are a bit skimpy; you'll probably want to do more. Overall, a solid, logical, clear student text.

I bought this book a couple of weeks ago, and found the CD's don't include and match all listening contents indicated by book.

The book was in ok shape, a lot of hand written notations though. My, complaint is that it did not include the CD, which is pretty critical for pronunciation exercises. Won't use this seller again.
