Pronunciation Teaching in a Lingua Franca Context -

Moderator: IATEFL Pronunciation SIG Co-ordinator Wayne Rimmer

Presenters: Robin Walker, Heather Hansen, Mark Hancock

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.
