Media Diversity in the Pronunciation Training in Large Groups of Learners. Evaluation of a German Pronunciation Training

Renata Asali-van der Wal

Abstract


The article presents and interprets a survey conducted among Jordanian learners on didactic and methodological problems in training German pronunciation and discusses respondents’ feedback on the teaching concept at the University of Jordan. The article pursues the question of if and how one can use various media in large groups of learners in pronunciation lessons. It discusses methods of training and identifies the development trends. We conclude that a focused one-semester training with the use of a variety of media is highly recommendable. Moreover, the paper establishes a thesis that songs in pronunciation lessons offer more than just singing or repetition and thus have a high potential for phonetic training.
