This article focuses on the link between automatic speech processing and L2 pronunciation learning. It stands as a "position paper" in favor of a more interdisciplinary perspective between the fields of Spoken Language Processing and Second Language Education in the process of designing user-friendly and pedagogically efficient Computer-Assisted Pronunciation Training systems. It offers an overview of current approaches and techniques in both fields (second language pronunciation teaching, from diagnostic to corrective feedback, and automatic pronunciation errors detection and correction). One distinctive aspect of our contribution lies in its connection with the field of corpus phonology, especially oral L2 learners' corpora. In conclusion, we call for more interactions between speech engineers and L2 education specialists to promote the use of such systems in L2 curricula.
