Preface of the Book

Oral English Pedagogue is a result-oriented students’ companion. It is an invaluable material that boosts the chances of success for every intending candidate.

The success-focused book has dealt with all sections of SSCE, GCE, UTME and Post-UTME Test of Orals giving hints on examiners’ bait, ample examples and relevant exercises.

The first three chapters set a solid foundation for the readers. Every student at any Senior Secondary School level should know the distinction between the alphabet and phonetic symbols. Such should equally know what transcription is and how to transcribe phonemically.

The subsequent chapters dealt elaborately with major issues that stand as stumbling blocks for candidates. Their contents adequately prepare any student to withstand any question in all sections. The book revealed how Plural and Past Tense markers, consonant clusters, silent letters, homophones and malapropism are used to test students’ basic knowledge of English phonology.

The dreaded stress pattern and stress placement have been conquered for students for students or candidates’ triumph. Readers will come across detailed practical analyses and hints on how to tackle questions on English stress.

It’s friendly and the witty caption of each chapter will surely go a long way to make the reader relax and digest the contents of the book. Correct answers on each exercise are provided for class activities.

Finally, I entail you to study this material diligently. Take cognizance of every detail. Do not just read to pass an examination but study to improve your spoken English. This will go a long way to give you an edge in life.
