I am a Master of Arts student in Applied Linguistics and English teacher in Brazil. I am interested in studying ways of getting students in touch with several English accents. I have worked with movies for this purpose. Recently, I got to know about the trainings that India Call Centers conduct so that people from other parts of the world can be helped. I’d like to get information about the approaches, techniques, methodologies used for pronunciation training. If anyone could help me by suggesting articles, books, company references, internet links etc., I’ll be greatful. My interest is not in a single English variety (R.P. GenAm, Indian, Standard English), but on any of them and specially on the procedures for implementing such trainings.
