Rhymes and Rhythm: A poem-based course for English pronunciation

Rhymes and Rhythm provides targeted pronunciation and listening practice through the medium of verse. Featuring lively, engaging poems ranging from limericks to raps, it offers an innovative and effective way for students of English to improve their understanding, and to be better understood.

Focusing on areas such as syllable length, linking, weak forms and stress placement, tasks and poems allow students to practise the understanding and production of fast, natural speech. A key to the tasks is included.

The accompanying CD-ROM contains detailed notes for teachers and ideas for additional activities, as well as extra material in the form of clearly presented complementary visuals.

'Pronunciation is woefully neglected in all mainstream language courses but it is the one area in which we can have lots of fun with patterning of sounds in a way which is acceptable even to teenagers and adults. The only book which I know that has systematically tried to do this is the wonderful Rhymes and Rhythm [...]' - David A. Hill, 'Language Play and Creative Language Learning'
