This paper examines the rationale behind including formal study of English Phonology in Primary EFL teacher trainee programmes. Having had insufficient formal training in English Phonology or been given little direction in how to use available sources to resolve pronunciation problems, Primary EFL teachers often lack confidence in their own pronunciation skills . This paper addresses these insecurities and proposes integrating specific areas of linguistic training in the formation of EFL Primary teachers , which is hoped will help build confidence and learner autonomy with regard to English pronunciation.
