    • Australia
    • Many others as well
  • Within these countries English takes on many different accents and dialects

15. Things to consideras an English Teacher

  • With the student who is learning all new language sounds foreign.
  • We may not realize it but some of our accents make it hard for our students to hear particular sounds in words.
  • Some of us may not have really strong or pronounced accents but we may have speech impediments that augment our speech as well.
    • Deaf people who have high speech ability
    • People with lisps
    • People with stutters

16. The Office-U.S. and U.K. version

  • A good exercise would be to show an episode of The Office to your students (if they are Adults)
  • The Office is a popular show in both the U.S. and U.K. and the students can practice listening to dialogue in British English as well as in American English so that they can hear the difference in how the language is spoken.
  • Then afterwards go through the different and similar words that the students heard and see what needs clarification.

17. Ways to tackle accents

  • Utilize other teachers that you work with as your resources to improve your students speaking skills.
  • Utilize movies from different English speaking countries.
  • Create audio listening files for your students to listen to.
