Derwing, Tracey M.; Rossiter, Marian J.; Munro, Murray J.
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v23 n4 p245-59 2002
Examined the effect of cross-cultural awareness training and explicit linguistic instruction on attitudes towards and comprehension of foreign-accented speech in three groups of students. Listening comprehension passages read in Vietnamese-accented speech before and after an 8-week instruction period revealed no cross-group differences. Attitude questionnaires indicated increased empathy for immigrants. (Author/VWL)
