The Use of Phonetics in the Teaching of English (English)
Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study about the usage of phonetics in the classroom.  The study is based on interviews with two English teachers and two future English teachers. The study also researches a website where teaching material are shared by teachers.

 

Firstly, the study wants to know what researchers think about phonetics in language teaching as well as in language learning. Secondly, the study researches what teachers think about phonetics and their opinions regarding the use of it in the classroom as well as their knowledge about the subject. Thirdly, the study investigates what future teachers of English said regarding the use of phonetics and if they felt prepared to use it in the classroom.

 

The study shows that researchers think highly of the use of phonetics in language learning. However, it is not used by the interviewees when teaching language because they find it redundant. Furthermore, the future teachers in this study said that they felt unprepared to use phonetics in the classroom.
