Getting to know our students inevitably involves getting to know their learning styles and preferred ways of acquiring knowledge. What is important in providing effective and productive instruction is introducing the learner-centred model in which students take advantage of their autonomy and where the teachers acts as a facilitator, the one who suggests, encourages, assists and directs his/her learners. The role of facilitation in teaching has become important since the 1970s. One of the advantages of teacher-student interaction is that it offers learners suggestions on how to continue learning outside the classroom situation which in the case of pronunciation teaching is of vital importance. Despite the fact that learner autonomy is a desirable goal, it does not diminish, or exclude, the role of the teacher in the learning process. Students must develop a positive attitude towards the subject for the acquisition to take place. Only stress-free and encouraging atmosphere counters the state of alienation and lowers affective filter. Teachers must realise that there are many types of the so-called good language learner so they must organise and adjust the teaching process accordingly to different types of learners.
