Learn to spell and pronounce words in English!

These two workbooks with audio CDs are excellent for helping students learn English vocabulary and spelling patterns. You will learn to pronounce printed words, spell common words, and make "educated guesses" in looking up the spellings of unfamiliar words. Here are some of the exercises that will help you acquire the sound-symbol (phonics) patterns of the American English spelling system:

  • Vocabulary-building activities
  • Error correction
  • Word games
  • Dictations
  • Stories

Both books (two levels) include review lessons, progress tests, and hundreds of illustrations, making them useful as "picture dictionaries. Exercise and activity types appeal to both visual and auditory learners.

Basic Everyday Spelling Workbook, with 2 CDs, contains one-syllable words with predictable and very common alternate spellings.

Practical Everyday Spelling Workbook, with 3 CDs, reviews the patterns presented in the previous book. Other chapters cover exceptional spellings, homophones, compound and multisyllable words, vowels before, and silent consonants.
