Abstract

This study entitled "Problems in Pronouncing the English Sounds Faced by the Students Of SMPN 2 Halong, Banjar" is intended to find out the problems in pronouncing the English sounds faced by the students of SMPN 2 Halong, Banjar. This research uses a qualitative method with contrastive analysis. The data were taken from the recorded student's voice. The researcher used recording, transcribing, and analyzing techniques. The researcher analyzed the data: 1. comparing English sounds and students pronunciation, 2. finding out the consonant, vowel, and diphthongs mispronounced by the students, 3. finding out students' difficulties in pronouncing the English sounds, 4. finding out the student's problems in pronouncing English sounds, five and drawing a conclusion. The Subjects of this research are Banjar students in ninth grade at SMPN 2 Halong. It was found that the students had problems pronouncing the English sounds of consonants (/t/, /θ/, /ʃ/, /-t/, /f, /ʒ /, /-d/), vowel (/ɒ/, /e/, /oʊ/) and diphthong( /eɪ/, /oʊ/, /ə r /). The sounds /θ/ are pronounced as [t], /ʃ/ is as [s], /ɒ / as [u], /oʊ/ as [aw], /ʒ/ as [s], while /t/, /eɪ /, /-t/, /-d/ and /ər/ are pronounced they are written. The error can be caused by the absence of the sound in their mother tongue.
