I’m an English teacher: Should I worry about my accent?

Many of us who are in the business of teaching English suffer from a feeling of accent anxiety. We are embarrassed that our accent does not match the ideal ‘standard’ accent found in books and dictionaries, and we worry that our speech may not be a good pronunciation model for our students. But perhaps our worries are misguided. In this presentation, I will suggest that ‘sounding like a native’ is neither necessary nor sufficient for teaching pronunciation well.
