But becoming aware of one’s assumptions is not easy especially if those assumptions come as taken-for-granted hand ..read more

This allows a solution to the objections to repetition, the use of a holistic pronunciation syllabus, and a way to integrate pronunciation into all ongoing class activity. Pronunciation i ..read more
