I am a PhD student at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. I am a sociophonetician. It has always bothered me whether it is true that people with good musical hearing acquire accents in foreign languages more effectively. On one sunny day, over a pizza we came up with an idea for this project.
In my PhD project, I am investigating the multimodal relationship between language and music. I am a phonetician and language trainer. It has always been intriguing to me whether we can quantify to what extent musical abilities and musical experience help my students learn an accent in English.
