    hi,,,
    usually this problem arises with the people return from foreign.
    but no need to worry.
    i think you should try to understand them by showing examples.that is the advanced technology of teaching.
    don't give lecture only.
    when they listen the thing and also see that things then they will understand it .
    and after some time they will used to with your accent.
    so,try to accommodate the situation.
    all the best !!!

    In such a situation you need to work on your accent for some days and also you need to make your speed less in terms of reading and dictating. That will help you in some way. But always think that it is not gonna be easy because kids are kids and you need to to make your own way to understand that which accent they will understand. In begening that will hurt you in some way but after some day kids will also become used to it. So never worry about these things as this will make you weak.

    Dear sir this will happen with you because you have completed your study abroad where you have been with relevant accent but when you have come here now to teach students so this will definitely create problem because India is only the country where native languages are more than any other country and it is called multilingual country and you will find out the same problem in every single state of India so first of all I would like to suggest you that you need to learn accent of the local area too and complete your study one local language of state/UT then only you will be able to speak clearly and you will not face the problem in pronunciation and accent while teaching students

    You need to be confident about your knowledge and your teaching because this will happen only for a short time and after that you will learn the local language and students will also be able to understand you that is why you should not loose your confidence about teaching status because you are the teacher and you should be dedicated to the students that is why you should learn everything for students and this will be your dedication to the students and you will get the profit in future and you must take the help of your colleague teachers because they will surely teach you about how to manage this situation and try to give more and more time with other teachers to learn this thing.

    All the best

    Educational system is the backbone of a nation.It is often said that the power of the nation is decided by the number of literate people in it.India is quite lacking from the literacy point of view and we need to increase it as much as possible to emerge as one of the super power and developed nation in the world.India is still developing and along with it the educational system is also experiencing many changes.Everyone has to slowly get accustomed to this new system and bring out its positive impact on the society and the people in the entire nation.

    India's educational system is getting slowly changed to the western type educational system.But there is a long time needed to reach at that extreme.But even though India is lacking in development,it has given many eminent scholars,scientists and learned men.This problem is quite natural to occur since you have come from foreign country where the educational culture is quite different.So you have to give yourself sometime to get accustomed to this India educational system.

    The western education is quite different from that of India.The knowledge remains the same,Indians also follow books of foreign authors but the method of teaching or imparting knowledge is quite different.Here sometimes the local language like Hindi,Bengali,Tamil,etc. gets mingled with the basic language English.Even the examination is somewhat different.So initially you have to face a bit of problem to get adjusted to it.

    But slowly with the advent of time,you will get adjusted to it and can do well.It is an excellent opportunity for you to learn new things and have a good experience.Try to learn and get accustomed,you may take help of senior teachers.You may also familiarize the students with some western education which might not be present in India.Cooperate with the students and they will cooperate in return.Slowly everything will be fine.

    Sir, i don't think feel it as a problem and i don't want you to change too.
    In the beginning students may find it difficult but it will be helpful to them if they start understanding.
    All you need to do is teach them actual pronunciation.
    Hope you understand. happy to assist you

    This is actually a problem that needs a little bit of innovation in your teaching methodology to solve.

    As you have developed an ascent which is now very difficult to change so you cannot do much on this part to solve this problem.

    The alternative that can help you in the problem is writing the things and if possible you can take help of power point presentations to aid

    your speech.

    You will also need some efforts in finding the common words that causes the problem of ascent. Like in class tell children that whatever they

    don't understand please ask immediately. Like this you can note those words that are creating those ascent problem and next time when you

    speak write that word on board simultaneously when you speak this will help in making children understand easily.

    Also you must need to slow down with the speed with which you speak this will improve the clarity in your speech.

    That may occur with you since you have completed the analyze in foreign countries where by you happen to be having related highlight yet for those who have can come right here at this point to train learners so this certainly will create problem simply because The Indian subcontinent is only the country where by natural spoken languages tend to be more in comparison with almost every other country plus it is called multilingual country plus you will find out the same issue in every condition connected with The Indian subcontinent therefore first of all I'd like to would suggest you actually that you have to find out highlight of your community way too and finished the analyze 1 regional terminology connected with state/UT and then you alone will discuss definitely and you may never face the condition in pronunciation plus highlight whilst educating learners.

    You've got to be self-confident regarding your awareness and your educating because may occur exclusively for a short time and after that you'll learn the neighborhood terminology plus learners can likewise be able to understand you actually that is definitely for you to never loose the self confidence concerning educating rank simply because you're the educator and you need to always be specialized in students that is definitely for you to find out every little thing for college kids can be your perseverance to help students and you may acquire the net income in future therefore you will need to take aid from the friend teachers given that they will definitely educate you about how to take care of this situation so you can provide an increasing number of moment compared to other teachers to know that thing.
    In their normal scenario you should work on your highlight for a few days plus additionally you desire to make the swiftness fewer with regards to studying plus dictating. To assist you using some way. Although usually assume that must be never gonna the simple simply because babies are children plus you should to make your technique to comprehend truly what highlight they're going to understand. Around beginning that could damage you actually in some way yet after someday children may even grow to be utilized to it. And so never ever worry about these matters because will make you weak.
    typically this challenge arises while using people today give back by foreign.
    yet no requirement to worry.
    there's no doubt that lowering comprehend these people through exhibiting examples.that is definitely the sophisticated technological innovation connected with teaching.
    will not provide spiel only.
    once they hear the fact and also see that things and then they're going to understand it.
    plus as time passes they're going to utilized to with your accent.
