Abstract

As a flexible and effective communication system for Non-Native Speakers of English (NNS), English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) is a frequently mentioned concept in the current literature on ELT. This study investigates if the problems encountered in the teaching of English pronunciation to Non-Native English Speakers (NNS) can be alleviated in Bangladesh through the ELF approach. In particular, it develops a simple and easy to teach/learn pronunciation teaching model specifically designed for Native Bengali Speakers (NBS). Furthermore, this study offers a prototype syllabus for English as a Lingua Franca for Bengalis (ELFB) based on the Bengali Lingua Franca Core Model (BLFC) adapted from LFC model of Jenkins.
