Gemma Archer is an EAP teacher and Pre-sessional co-ordinator in the English language department at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. She is also the editor of the IATEFL Pronunciation Special Interest Group’s bi-annual journal ‘Speak Out!’. Gemma holds a CELTA, Dip TESOL and a Master’s of Research in English Language and Linguistics and has taught English in the UK, Ireland, Italy and the Middle East. In her current teaching work, she specialises in pronunciation and phonology in an EAP context and as stand-alone electives, however her particular passion is in researching and teaching with diverse L2 and regional accents, particularly Scottish Standard English. Her most recent research has focused on students’ perceptive and productive uptake upon exposure to regional L1 pronunciation models, and the effects of phonological mismatch on teachers’ motivation to teach pronunciation.
