You know that native English speakers do not have the same accents, so good English pronunciation does not mean using a British or American accent, and an accent of none native speakers is acceptable as long as the speech is understood by other speakers of English. I would be very happy to learn how other teachers deal with problems arising from the influence of mother language on the spoken performance of their students in English. The main goal for our students is basic communication.. So as an English teacher we try our best to demonstrate the language as perfectly as possible.... trying to preserve the beauty of English..... . Pronunciation is a skill that is improved through practice. I think nowdays there are many listening activites on INET which can be used in class I'd like to share some of them http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/grammar/pron/ www.eslkidslab.com I'd be glad if you share your thoughts about it !!
