MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this research is mainly concerned with evaluating the Algerian middle school textbook entitled On the Move in terms of pronunciation issue. To carry out our research, we used Jeremy Harmer (2001) techniques of teaching pronunciation. As regards data collection, On the Move textbook was the corpus used. In order to analyze the data, we opted for a mixed-method research, combining quantitative and qualitative methods. The former helped us to obtain statistical data and the latter served in interpreting the results using content analysis. The obtained findings answer the two research questions that are asked in the introduction. The first one is that, On the Move textbook contains more supra-segmental activities than segmental ones. The second is that, the four techniques of pronunciation teaching suggested by Jeremy Harmer (whole lessons, discrete slots, integrated phases, and opportunistic teaching) are implemented in On the Move.
