Phonetics is the cornerstone of language. The improvement of the proficiency of pronunciation has a great effect on the level of English listening and speaking skills. Learners with high proficiency in pronunciation can communicate effectively in terms of thoughts, culture, and emotions [1]. However, due to the limitations of the language environment, subject characteristics, and traditional teaching methods, non-English majors often face problems such as difficulty in pronunciation and lack of motivation for learning, which raise concerns regarding the English phonetic learning situation among these students. Therefore, innovative phonetic teaching is of great significance to non-English majors. This paper aims to provide some innovative and effective strategies for the innovative teaching of English phonetics for non-English majors to meet the learning needs of students, and to provide useful guidelines for future teaching reform and practice.According to the literature review and personal teaching experience, the article summarizes some innovative strategies that can improve the teaching of non-English majors’ pronunciation, such as using real situations and technical assistance,encouraging cooperative learning, gamifying phonetic learning, and so on. By implementing these strategies, students can improve phonetic sensitivity and pronunciation accuracy, thereby enhancing their listening skills and oral fluency.
