This L2Phon page aims to promote and disseminate findings from our projects, led by Dr. LI Bin and her collaborators, on second and foreign language (L2) speech acquisition in its perceptual and expressive dimensions. This site also shares our attempts to identify challenges in L2 pronunciation and to explore models for effective teaching and learning.

We hold weekly meetings to discuss and explore research questions and methods, mainly focusing on the following areas:

  • Cross-language speech perception and production
  • Pronunciation teaching and learning
  • Contextual and social variables in speech analysis
  • Prosody in discourse
  • Speech disorders and rehabilitation


We are pleased to announce the relocation and launch of webpages that host Prof. John Higgins’ works on English pronunciation teaching and learning. The pages can be accessed under "Resources" from the top menu.
