    Abstract

    Dewi Kusumawati. 2009. Teaching English Pronunciation to the Fifth Grade Students of SDN Tempuran 1, Simo, Boyolali . English Diploma Program, Faculty of Letters and Fine Arts, UNS. This final project report is written based on the job training that has been done by the writer for 100 hours in SDN Tempuran 1, Simo, Boyolali. This final project report tries to describe the process of teaching English pronunciation to the fifth grade students, to find out the problems faced by the students, and to give solutions to the problems. The data of this final project report were collected through observation, interview, and library study. The observation was done in class while the process of teaching and learning was taking place. The interview was done to the English teacher and the fifth grade students. The library study was emphasized in some documents such as teaching materials and books from the library. The methodology used by the writer was the Audio-lingual method which was thought to be the most appropriate method because it relied heavily on drills to form habits. The drills were by repeating words or sentences after the teacher. Consequently, students got accustomed to pronouncing English words correctly. Moreover, the writer taught them systematically based on the lesson plan containing four steps, namely Motivating Strategy, Presentation Strategy, Skill Practice, and Assessment. Motivating Strategy was used to arouse the students’ motivation toward the material. Presentation Strategy was used to give explanations concerning the day’s lesson. Skill Practice was used to give more opportunities for students-centered learning such as playing games. Assessment was used to assess the final outcome of the lesson. The writer found out that the teaching of English pronunciation using Audio-lingual method and lesson plan were quite successful. From her observation, it could be concluded that the problems faced by the fifth grade students in learning English pronunciation were from the students’ difficulties in pronouncing English sounds and words, from the limited materials and facilities, and from the low student’s interest and motivation. The solutions on the students’ difficulties in pronouncing English sounds and words are by memorizing and practicing pronouncing English sounds and words as many as possible. The solutions on the limited materials and facilities are by providing more interesting materials and more facilities such as tape recorders and televisions to support the process of teaching and learning English, especially in learning English pronunciation. While the solutions on the low students’ interest and motivation come from the teacher who should have the ability to make interesting classes and the students who should be highly motivated for the sake of their own success in mastering English pronunciation.
