|An ambitious language called English once applied for the prestigious job of "Global Language". It got the job. Thrilled with its new position, English decided to advertise for a new enemy of effective communication, a post traditionally held by grammar. Hopeful applicants sent in their CVs but it soon became clear that there was only one right candidate for the position; grammar was fired and pronunciation hired. And I must say that Pronunciation has really grown into the role. But I can't help thinking that pronunciation doesn't have to be the enemy. Come talk pronunciation with me and explore plenty of practical ways on and offline to help our learners to become intelligible.
