Very interesting stuff..... I'd like to teach ESL but don't have the paper

Two days ago I heard a radio intereview on CBC, Morning show Vancouver (Its on the Internet) in which the ESL Guru proclaimed that the teaching of American English to ESL students, rather than Canadian accented English, resulted in better outcomes in terms of loosing a foreign accent.

As far as I understood it, the reason for this was due to the way an American pronounced their words without clipping off lip or tongue movements.

Have a good one this year.
