Identifying areas of pronunciation worth focusing on can be challenging. The Pronunciation Planner allows us to identify the areas of English pronunciation that learners from different first-language backgrounds find most difficult. The tool draws on knowledge of first-language transfer, comprehensibility and intelligibility, as well as levels of difficulty associated with the production of different sounds. All of this allows us to prioritise certain pronunciation features for practice within an English language course.
