20 As far as I understand, one of the purposes of this course is to discuss the differences between the Icelandic and the English phonetic systems. [...] are there any other foreign students taking the course? If the course is designed especially for Icelandic students, will my foreign background have any (negative) influence on the studies? Yes, there are a lot of non-Icelandic speakers in the class. There are two reasons for my continuing to focus on special Icelandic problems: 1) with a BA in English, you might well end up teaching English in and Icelandic school. 2) as you may have noticed if you've looked at the first video on the schedule, non-native pronunciations of English have many features in common - perhaps even more than distinguish them. Have you ever noticed how Lithuanians and Germans and Japanese seem to understand each other better in English than they understand Londoners? No, this will not put you at a disadvantage - I'll take full account of it in my asseeement.
