Re: 'Pronunciation games ' by M Hancock
I don't know that particular book, but experience of many courses and many 'essential' books has made me very cautious indeed about squandering my limited resources on books that may turn out to have only a page or two of real value.
What course are you taking? If it's a CELTA or Trinity DipTESOL course, then that book (even if it's superb), is not 'essential'.
My personal feeling (and that's all it is) the only two books that you should buy before embarking on a Cert course are Michael Swan's Practical English Usage and either Jim Scrivener's Learning Teaching or Jeremy Harmer's How to Teach English.
