Basic Spoken English American English Edition 《基础英语口语美式英语版本》

The American English Edition of Basic Spoken English is now ready for download. Check it out!

I wrote this textbook last week for Chinese students wishing to improve their spoken English (英语口语), but English teachers in China may also find this a useful resource in the classroom.

The first lesson includes a breakdown of all the basic sounds of the English language. I have recorded both a male and female version of the mp3 which students can practice. The rest of the lessons are made up of short dialogues for students to listen to and role-play. You can find translations into Chinese of the key vocabulary in the Basic Spoken English PDF.

    Hi Carl,
    Can you provide us with more interpreting dialogues? It seems that it has been a long time since your last post.
