Audio Pronunciation Guide (3000 Words)
It takes much time and effort to master the phonetic symbols and then use the same to find the correct pronunciation of words from the dictionary. In the meantime, learners pick up many wrong pronunciations which are difficult to rectify afterwards. To overcome this problem, we have recorded the pronunciation of 3000 commonly used words. These word are divided into the Basic, Junior, Senior and Advanced level categories. Each word is repeated thrice so that the words become clearly imprinted in the minds of the learners. For ease of listening the audio tracks are of about ten minute duration. All the Basic, Junior, Senior and Advanced files are in separate folders. The files are recorded in the mp3 format. This MSword file may also be printed to that the learner can follow the printed list while listening to the pronunciations. Repeatedly listening to the audio pronunciations will help develop the pronunciation. The Windows Media Player is also provided on the CD.
