Abstract

This research intends to present the problematic situation in a descriptive manner about the English pronunciation proficiency of third year students of the Bachelor of Arts in English, Specialty: Teaching Major of the Foreign Language Department (FLD) at the University of El Salvador. This report presents the circumstantial origins of the problem, its evolution, its current conditions (external and internal), its weaknesses and strengths as well as its most common techniques to evaluate oral skills, with the goal of providing a diagnosis which can establish effectively a remedial answer to this problem. Pronunciation, as a process of the production of sounds to make meaning, is one of the most important aspects of a person’s speech. Nevertheless, in some cases Pronunciation and its aspects involved, such as sounds, intonation, stress, rhythm and some others, are hardly taught in a classroom. This situation carries the students to communication problems in so many areas and aspects of their personal and professional daily life. The results of the research show some common pronunciation deficiencies in vowel sounds and also the students’ problem in the confusion and differentiation of sounds. It is also shown the students’ need to have a study plan with subjects that might help them out to improve their pronunciation. Moreover, it reflects the need for students to have more access to specialized resources to help their English pronunciation along with some other interesting findings.
