The book is intended to help develop the oral communication skills of second language learners, especially those who have had a regional language medium of instruction at school and who have had little or no exposure to spoken English. It is primarily aimed at students preparing to enter the main stream, which would require them to compete with those who have a stronger base in English. The book can also be used as self-instructional material by people who are employed or engaged in different activities of their own. The book comes with an audio CD that gives learners an opportunity to listen to dialogues in everyday situations and that provide answers to practice exercises as well. Also included are brief, easy to understand tips on pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and usage. The book offers learners a second and more advanced set of 25 functions that require the use of relatively complex language structures than those in Part 1.

Dr Kamlesh Sadanand is former Professor and Head, Centre for Phonetics and Spoken English, CIEFL, Hyderabad. Besides her long years of experience in teaching and developing ELT materials and in supervising research work, she has published several papers and books, prominent among which is A Practical Course in English Pronunciation.
