Most published guidance on teaching pronunciation acknowledges this; and there are a number of well-known reference books which contrast the pronunciation of English with the pronunciation of other languages in considerable detail. However, for teachers working with multilingual classes and for materials writers creating courses for international markets, there is little guidance available on the challenges that learners with different L1 backgrounds might have in common. This makes it difficult for language educators to identify pronunciation priorities for diverse groups of learners. The Pronunciation Planner provides a solution to this problem. The contents of the Pron Planner are informed by research into which features of English pronunciation facilitate mutual understanding by speakers in international contexts. Underpinning this research is the principle that by far the most common use of English worldwide today is as a lingua franca, that is, between people who have different first languages but all speak English, so choose to use English as their language of communication. This is the main reason why some users of the Pron Planner might feel that certain things are missing which they would normally see in ELT courses for example, intonation patterns or connected speech : such features have been demonstrated to be low-priority by research into what constitutes intelligible pronunciation in international English contexts.
