"Adelaide Sounds Good" aims to engage the learner through active listening to a series of dialogues with follow up information about the location as well as pronunciation exercises. Each dialogue focuses on a problematic vowel or consonant and features instruction on how to make the sound. The dialogues are contextualised in a range of Adelaide venues eg AAMI Stadium, Waterfall Gully, Glenelg, etc, and are written in the style of young native speakers of English - incorporating many colloquialisms and some slang. The characters, Adelaide and Theo, are tertiary students and we watch and listen as they cover a number of different topics in their light hearted banter. The Student Workbook is designed to be used independently, in groups or class settings.
