What is the best accent for students to aim for? A better question for teachers might be, “Who will my students be speaking to?” In many teaching contexts, there are people from many cultures and backgrounds that our students might encounter, so they need to be ready with clear pronunciation. How can we help them achieve this?

In this webinar, National Geographic Learning teacher trainer Andy will discuss a new approach to a pronunciation syllabus that prioritizes global communication, so that students can be understood by a wide variety of people. Andy will discuss how this pronunciation approach was developed by expert authors, what content is included in this approach, and how it can be implemented in classrooms.
