Based on the data analysis from each activity, it can be seen that there is a significant difference of the students’ achievement in the pretest and posttest. The students’ achievement in the posttest is higher than that of the pretest. After the treatment by using songs in each cycle, the students’ achievement in pronouncing English words improved. This improvement is caused by the students’ interest of the songs given and the relevance between vocabularies that are presented in the songs used in this action research and the vocabulary that the students have already got, but they still get difficulties in pronouncing them. Based on this study, it is found that the use of songs in teaching English is effective to improve the students’ pronunciation and very beneficial for the students in order to facilitate them in learning English.
