Can Pronunciation Learning Be Communicative?

Abstract


In the teaching and learning processes of a second or foreign language, it is very important to develop a clear pronunciation. Pronunciation in communication plays an important role if we consider that it is through an acceptable pronunciation that communication can be successfully achieved. The updated methodology for English teaching and learning processes deals with the use of communication in the classroom, but it is also true that these communicative methodologies do not mention the training students should have in pronunciation skills as a complement to the development of communicative competence.

Keywords
