Title

Addressing pronunciation in the L2 classroom : best practices

Subject Area

Foreign Language Pedagogy

Abstract

While foreign language methods offer a listening panel to their programs, students complete these exercises with various results. It is striking that some students hear and discern the target-language better than others.Research clearly indicates that students who are unable to express themselves in L2 with a minimum of accuracy in their pronunciation, will not do well with native speakers, as communication will easily breakdown (Hirschfeld & Trouvain, 2007). The aim of this paper is to look at what researchers currently suggest is best practice for handling pronunciation exercises so that all of our students can be successful.
