Whaddaya Say?, 2nd edition, by Nina Weinstein, helps intermediate to high-intermediate students understand English as it is really spoken.  This easy-to-use listening program familiarizes students with the rapid speech commonly used in everyday life. In particular, the book introduces students to the most common reduced forms – such as *gonna (“going to” + verb), *wanna (natural speed pronunciation for “want to”), and *hafta (“have to”) – fully contextualized in conversations that are both practical and entertaining.

 

Using language students encounter in everyday situations, Whaddaya Say? explains the most common pronunciation changes that occur when English speakers talk at a natural speed. This allows all students to improve their comprehension of spoken English, both inside and outside the classroom.

 

Each of the text’s 30 lessons includes an audio segment that introduces new reduced forms, followed by comprehension questions and practice questions.

 

The book also includes short listening tests for extra practice and self-assessment.

Review:

This is a great book to improve your spoken English and better understand everyday language spoken in the USA. As an English teacher, I do recommend this book to those who are interested in understanding and communicating in English in a more natural way. Review on amazon.com

December 16, 2008 By Marcos Victor (Brazil): Great resource!

October 3, 2008 By Kathy (Texas): This is an absolutely outstanding resource for helping students improve their listening skills. Overall, it's a great resource and my students love it!

September 10, 2007 By Javier G. Longo (Rosario, Santa Fe Argentina): It changed my life. I've used this GREAT book before my last trip to the USA. It's amazing the difference it made to my English. I had several business meetings with Americans and I understood everything, I mean everything they said. That didn't happen to me before using Whaddaya say?. I also learned to use reduced forms to improve my speed. But the most important thing is the almost magical change in my understanding. A suggestion is to follow carefully the instructions, then listen to each conversation and repeat it many times. The book is also great source of expressions and uses, not just reduced forms. A must have ! Thank you Nina !!!!! --reviews on amazon.com
