    Kang Xuekun

    This paper aims to identify the major phonetic difficulties of Chinese college students in understanding spoken Indian English (IE) based on the difference between IE and RP (Received Pronunciation), and to analyze their causes from both a subjective and objective perspective of students’ English learning, which helps to further explore our proper attitude towards outer circle Englishes. The paper also seeks to explore some effective teaching methods to overcome those difficulties, and discovers that both extensive exposure to Indian English variants and an intensive training in specific phonemes under the multi-modal teaching method are effective approaches to enhancing students’ recognition capabilities. The research also reveals a significant change in students’ attitude towards learning Outer Circle English Variant (OCEV) using various teaching methods, with multi-modal class being more positive. The paper maintains that purposeful phonetic training on OCEV serves as an effective cultivation of intercultural communication ability of Chinese English learners.
