in touch with real speech
In touch with real speech

JIPA – Henderson

Alice Henderson works at the University of Savoie, and has written a review of Phonology for Listening in the Journal of the International Phonetic Association – the August 2014 issue.

Like Jane Setter’s review, it gives a comprehensive account of the contents of the book and ends:

This book, from an author who seems genuinely interested in learners’ needs and perspectives, will inspire ELT professionals to revisit their understanding of the speech stream in order to harness its potential more effectively. Such a change of focus has the potential to help many learners to better cope with real spoken English.
