The report gives a brief overview of the biggest challenges that teachers of English phonetics face nowadays and outlines some solutions that have been brought about by recent cutting-edge research in the field. The English language is a global phenomenon of the modern world, and this is why many such solutions are technology-driven, whereas the researchers hail from all over the world. The crucial task to deal with is raising awareness of the importance of phonetics as the cornerstone of all language learning and motivating people to study it, which could also increase the number of young researchers pushing the theory of phonetics forward and thus improving its practical teaching.
