A Practical Course in Spoken English addresses the twin requirements of spoken language ability—a neutral accent and good grammar. The first part of the book focuses on the correct articulation of the sounds of the language, paying attention to stress, intonation and rhythm. The next section helps learners brush up their grammar, highlighting those features of traditional grammar that are crucial to making any message clear to a listener. Written especially for speakers of Indian languages, this book contains practical advice on overcoming the influences of one's native language without sounding phoney or affected, and developing a neutral accent that is intelligible around the world.
