Just a quick cross-blog plug – I recently ran a short series of workshops at SGI on English as a Lingua Franca and how it might impact the way we teach pronunciation. These went well and we decided to follow them up with some related blog posts, which you can find here:
Part 1 of 3: English Around The World
Part 2 of 3: Variation, Accent and Intelligibility
Part 3 of 3: The Lingua Franca Core and if/how we might teach it
Since then, I’ve started to co-author a blog specifically dedicated to this topic, which you can find here.
