Understanding Spoken English: A Focus on Everyday Language in Context: Student Book One & CD

Welcome to Understanding Spoken English – a focus on everyday language in context. This book, along with its accompanying audio recording, has been designed to help you to understand English as it is spoken in ‘everyday’ situations in English speaking environments around the world. As a student of English as a second or foreign language, you are no doubt aware of the difference between the formally presented language of many textbooks and the speech you hear, outside the language classroom , in the English speaking media or in conversations with native English speakers.

As well as introducing and explaining the meaning of many widely used everyday expressions, each unit focuses on other aspects of English, such as the use of contractions (eg. won’t rather than will not ellipsis (incomplete sentences) and intonation (the rise and fall of the voice pitch). These features are distinctive characteristics of spoken (rather than written) English. You will also learn social conventions involved in everyday situations such as making a telephone call, dealing with service people and informal social interactions. I sincerely hope you enjoy and benefit from using Understanding Spoken English – a focus on everyday language in context.
