Abstract

Using audio files on mobile phones, in a work-based programme of teacher professional development in Bangladesh, provides students and teachers—having little prior exposure to spoken English—a near native example of spoken English to enhance teaching and learning. External evaluation demonstrates this approach to TEFL is both cost-efficient and successful at helping students acquire higher levels of English language proficiency.
