Abstract: The issue of “foreign accent”, one of the most noticeable marks of Second (L2) and Foreign Language learning (FLL) has taken much attention in the literature of L2 acquisition and FLL since the advent of “Audio-lingual Method”, which set native speaker fluency as a goal for language learners. One of the reasons why so much attention is given to accent-related issues is because of the fact that there is a growing awareness, among L2 researchers, teachers and teacher trainers, of the key role of pronunciation in communication (Munro et al, 2006).
