The globalisation of English has multiple implications for the teaching of the language, especially to those learners whose main use of English will be for international communication, often in the absence of native speakers. Nowhere are these implications more far-reaching than in the teaching of pronunciation. This symposium looks at the goals of pronunciation teaching in this new era, and at learner attitudes to new goals, and at classroom practices suited to achieving the new goals.

A really useful workshop. I have downloaded the slides and will use them with my EAP Practical English Course. They will get acquainted with the topic and use the slides as primary and secondary school teachers. I am the participant who you realized was a little skeptic on sentence decontextualization. I think that with advanced lessons contextualizing the tonality and tonicity would be very useful. Thanks for everything you taught me that day. Best, Rafael
