I would also have foreign speakers practice speaking slowly with slightly longer than average pauses between sentences and paragraphs. My biggest problem listening to speakers with heavy accents is that they tend to speak too fast. I'm busy running a mental playback with a filter for their particular phonetic shifts to make sure that I'm hearing what they said correctly. I need the extra long pauses to finish the playback of the last sentence before I'm ready to listen to the next one.
