To what extent should English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) principles underlie English pronunciation instruction of international students at Brookes?

I would like to showcase a poster about my use of interactive technology – primarily but also shared Google sheets – to enhance the online learning of English pronunciation among international students within Pathways at Brookes. I have made recent steps towards incorporating the English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) notion that the goal of such practice should be intelligibility rather than unachievable first language competence levels; I would like to consider these as well as explore further the more radical implications of ELF ideas and the extent to which they are appropriate for our international students at Brookes.
