The course is also interesting for the self-taught student, since it also includes a section with exercises to be carried out at home or in the linguistic laboratory. Solutions are included.
The text includes a brief theoretical section that provides a global idea of the matter and a working section divided into 6 chapters, each dedicated to a specific topic: ratio pronunciation-spelling, double, comparison sounds, vocals, accent, intonation.
