Using personal voice recorders to improve second language

This project focuses on the use of personal digital voice recorders in the Spanish classroom as a means to help students: a) improve their Spanish language accent and b) improve language syntax. Through the project, students should learn to self-correct more often with reduced need for teacher intervention. During the project, students will be exposed to a variety of accents from Spanish-speaking countries, including those from Spain, Central and South America, and the United States. Students will be encouraged to develop an accent/pronunciation style using the cultural accent(s) with which they are most comfortable.
