The Academic Advisory Committee
Jacques Roston, the founder and pioneer of Linguaphone's self-study language courses, was himself advised by distinguished scholars in the field of languages, including Daniel Jones. Jones is probably the best-known phonetician in the field of languages. He is the author of the definitive English Pronouncing Dictionary.

In 1967, Linguaphone formalised its relationship with the academic world by appointing an Academic Advisory Committee (AAC). The AAC oversees the development of all Linguaphone courses in order to maintain the highest standards of excellence.

Today, Linguaphone's Academic Advisory Committee consists of distinguished scholars in the field of languages, linguistics and phonetics.
