Nguyen, Loc Tan; Newton, Jonathan – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
The role of teacher professional learning (TPL) in assisting teachers to teach pronunciation in English as a second/foreign language (ESL/EFL) contexts has received little attention. The study reported in extends this line of research by investigating how six EFL teachers at a Vietnamese university transform and integrate the pronunciation…

Gordon, Joshua – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
Explicit pronunciation instruction enhances production of intelligible, comprehensible, and fluent second language (L2) speech. Additionally, task-based instruction (TBI) enhances the production of segmentals and suprasegmentals, and promotes awareness of L2 forms in pronunciation. Since most previous research on TBI in L2 pronunciation learning…

Low, Ee Ling – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
Research has seen a growing recognition of the crucial role pronunciation plays in teaching English as an International Language (EIL), in achieving effective communication and its close link to the mastery of other aspects of language teaching and learning. In spite of its recognised importance, pronunciation is still a marginalised skill in many…

Suzukida, Yui – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
Adult second language (L2) learning often exhibits great variability in its rate and outcome. Although research shows that learning trajectories are partly shaped by social and contextual factors (e.g. Larson-Hall, 2008), certain learner factors play an important role in enhancing L2 pronunciation learning by helping L2 learners notice and process…

LaScotte, Darren; Meyers, Colleen; Tarone, Elaine – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
There are two broad approaches to the research and teaching of second-language (L2) pronunciation--'bottom-up' and 'top-down'--which roughly align with structural and communicative approaches to language teaching. A bottom-up approach, explicitly focusing on de-contextualised linguistic forms, is structuralist and predominated in the second half…

Henrichsen, Lynn E. – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
Computer-assisted pronunciation teaching (CAPT) for second-language learners has made great strides in recent years. While once small in number and confined to desktop computers, a great variety of CAPT resources are available online today. These resources provide instructional activities of various types, utilize different sensory modalities, and…

Hansen Edwards, Jette; Chan, Ka Long Roy; Lam, Toni; Wang, Qian – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
The current article presents a state-of-the-art review of research on the social factors that have been found to impact how learners acquire and use a second language (L2) sound system. These factors include ethnic group identification, gender, and study abroad experience. The research synthesis presents the key findings on each social factor,…

Couper, Graeme – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
This article reviews questions that non-native (NNEST) and native speaker (NEST) teachers, working in different contexts, have about pronunciation teaching. It draws on theory, research, and practice to answer those questions as far as possible. The data was collected across two projects that investigated teachers' cognitions: their knowledge,…

Messum, Piers; Young, Roslyn – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
Just as forming letters is the motor skill component of writing, pronouncing--forming sounds and other features of the spoken language--is the motor skill component of pronunciation. The motor task for L2 (second language) learners is to invent for themselves the actions needed for pronouncing L2, either from matching a model they hear (goal…

Darcy, Isabelle; Rocca, Brian; Hancock, Zoie – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
This project analyzes teacher behavior using a corpus of 110 hours of recorded instruction in order to document the realities of second-language pronunciation instruction. Teachers of six intact classes were recorded during a seven-week oral communication course. Four classes implemented a focus on pronunciation that was integrated into the…

Rogerson-Revell, Pamela M. – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
This viewpoint essay considers the current status of computer-assisted pronunciation training (CAPT) before examining some of the current issues and future directions in the field. The underlying premise is the pedagogic potential of CAPT systems and resources for teaching and learning, and the need for greater synergy between technological design…

Hardison, Debra M.; Pennington, Martha C. – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
This article reviews research findings involving visual input in speech processing in the form of facial cues and co-speech gestures for second-language (L2) learners, and provides pedagogical implications for the teaching of listening and speaking. It traces the foundations of auditory-visual speech research and explores the role of a speaker's…

Sadeghi, Karim; Richards, Jack C.; Ghaderi, Farah – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2020
The impact of the non-native speaker's (NNS) language proficiency on their personal teaching performance has often been an issue in TESOL teacher education programmes. To explore this issue a study was conducted to investigate the link between language teachers' language proficiency and their teaching effectiveness. Classes taught by eight NNS…

Moorhouse, Benjamin L.; Beaumont, Andrew M. – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2020
Involving parents in their children's school-based English language learning is beneficial to learners' academic achievement as well as their language and literacy development. However, involving parents can be challenging. This study reports on one teacher's use of a digital learning platform, Seesaw, with his third-grade (7 to 8 year-olds)…
