The practice of reading aloud benefits the student regardless of which
pronunciation system is being used.  It's unfortunate that some do not
incorporate it into their teaching method.

. . .    I'm also convinced that instructors should use a *known*
pronunciation
(yes, in spite of the fact that there are too many vowels and diphthongs
that produce the -ee- sound.) I practice reading out loud from time to time
and have noticed a definite increase in my confidence level as well as an
improvement in the flow when just reading the text. Maybe when time and $$
permit I'll get to sit at Randall's feet.
