Hello everyone,
A colleague recently sent me a link to Phys-Org and an article titled Fluency outweighs pronunciation for understanding non-native English speakers.
http://phys.org/news/2014-05-fluency-outweighs-pronunciation-non-native-english.htmlby Amy Patterson Neubert - May 9, 2014

This article informs us that the research coming from Purdue University reports that second language English speakers are easier to understand by their fluency more so than their accuracy of pronunciation.

Ponder this and then let us know if you agree!

Happy Teaching!
