    Abstract

    This final project is written based on the job training which has been done in SDN Ngoresan, Surakarta. This report discusses the process of pronunciation teaching and learning, and also the encountered problem accompanied with the solution. The step in pronunciation teaching consists of four stages. There are motivation strategy, presentation strategy, skill practice and assessment. Motivation strategy is the first stage in which the teacher encourages students’ motivation in order that teaching and learning process can be conducted effectively. Presentation strategy is held to deliver the materials and give examples how to pronounce words correctly. The next stage is skill practice in which the teacher gives several exercises to the students. After doing the exercises, the teacher gives feedback or correction to the students’ performance. This stage is called assessment. There are many problems appearing during the teaching and learning process such as accent influence, students' bad attitude, low motivation, insufficient allocated time, big class, and limited material as well as facility. To overcome those problems, the writer gives several solutions and suggestions to improve the quality of English pronunciation teaching and learning. To solve affecting accent problem, the writer makes activities that give more chances to the students to produce sounds actively. Dealing with the students’ bad attitude, the writer tries to change the students’ negative view toward target language community by explaining the good aspect of their culture. The writer also encourages the students’ motivation by introducing the significance of English, especially pronunciation. Because of insufficient allocated time, the writer makes activities that suit to the allocated time. Big class causes disorder atmosphere to appear. To handle this, the writer stops the class until the students settle down and also warns the students who behave harmfully. To overcome limited material and facility, the writer makes appropriate material and searches materials from many resources.
