USING ENGLISH SONGS EFFECTIVELY FOR THE PRACTICE OF PRONUNCIATION IN LAC HONG UNIVERSITY EFL CLASSES
In the context of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) where the exposure to authentic English language is
limited, there is always a need of methods of teaching and learning which offer learners sufficient access to communicative
practice. Among the problems that arise, issues related to pronunciation really ring the alarm and should be taken into account.
There have been existing similar problems in EFL classes at Lac Hong University where students find it hard and unmotivated
to learn and improve their pronunciation in general, and the ability to perform sentence in particular. Therefore, a novel
approach of using English songs for practising this communicative aspect was used with a hope that this could reflect a sense
of effectiveness. Qualitative action research with questionnaires, interviews and class observations was carried out with the
participation of 100 learners from 4 classes where they were presented English songs in the periods of pronunciation practice.
The result was positive – the level of engagement and performance strongly increased. Moreover, this approach was also
proved to be an interesting and effective way of self-study and long-life study
