    I was once an English teacher at New Oriental School, teaching basic oral English and New Concept English Book 2. But for me, there are various accent phenomenons in American English which gave my young students and I many headaches until I was introduced to Rachel’s English.  

    Now, we have a book by Rachel: Concise, comprehensive and friendly words and audio recordings make it so much easier and helpful when you want to learn common and classical pronunciation such as Can vs. Can’t, reduction of SHOULD, GONNA, etc. I bet many English teachers here in China don’t know what "muna" is.  I am so grateful that I have been inspired by Rachel’s English and hope every American English learner can join the beautiful journey along with Rachel :D!

    Even if speaking like an American is not your goal, be aware of what a native English speaker does unconsciously  - reducing, linking, smoothing their lines - at a low pace, and broken into small pieces.  It will help you to increase your ability to understand and express yourself better; this book shows you how a native speaker communicates in real life.

    This book is essential for those who want to go into the vast field of American English sounds and its rhythm and melody. With a friendly and pleasant reading, in American English Pronunciation, Rachel conducts you from the most basic English sounds, going through consonant clusters, to reduction and linking, considering the most common hurdles that she has faced through her years of experiences, teaching people all over the world.

Everything you need to know about Pronunciation

Take A Glimpse Inside The Book

What makes this book different?

  1. Learn concepts together:  The problem with many English pronunciation books is that you learn one concept, then another.  In American English Pronunciation, you'll find an integrated approach and learn concepts together.  For example, when you learn the sounds, you'll study what they're like in stressed and unstressed syllables.
  2. Study real conversation:  A large chapter at the end takes all of the concepts you've learned and applies them to real conversation you'll hear in everyday American English.  Study English the way Americans really speak it.  
  3. Over 200 Videos:  The 290-page book is a lot more than text.  Perhaps you've seen some of the Rachel's English videos before, one at a time, but didn't know where to start.  Here, you'll find everything put together in a system, start to finish.
  4. Over 150 Audio Files:  You can't get better if you don't practice!  The audio files give you ample listen-and-repeat content.  You'll learn how to practice difficult words and phrases with over 150 audio files featuring male and female voices.
