Fei Ping Por, Soon Fook Fong

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of Multimedia Pronunciation Learning Management System (MPLMS) on the pronunciation achievement of students with different psychological profiles. Pronunciation is a salient element of effective communication. To be able to speak English comprehensibly, an individual needs to acquire correct pronunciation. The MPLMS is to be developed in three different presentation modes - Text + Sound + Mouth Movements (TSM), Text + Sound + Phonetic Symbols (TSP), Text + Sound + Mouth Movements + Phonetic Symbols (TSMP) with the aim to improve students’ competence on correct pronunciation. To further explore the effects of the MPLMS, this study employs quasi-experimental factorial design which involves two levels for visualization, namely High Visual and Low Visual, and three levels of language anxiety, namely Low Language Anxiety, Medium Language Anxiety and High Language Anxiety. The MPLMS is expected to provide a feasible and innovative learning environment to address the problems. By integrating the MPLMS into the English language instructional design, students will improve their pronunciation competence.
