    Abstract

    Pronunciation is the way a person utters a word or a language. There are many differences of pronunciation between English and Indonesian. Therefore, there are many students of Elementary school especially the students of SDN 01 Sekaran Gunungpati who pronounce English words incorrectly. In this case, I observed that English children songs are suitable media to teach them English pronunciation. The problems of the study are as follows: Can teaching English pronunciation by using English children songs improve the students’ ability in English pronunciation? Is it effective to use English children songs in teaching English pronunciation? And the objectives of the study are: to find out whether using English children songs can improve students’ ability in English pronunciation and to find out to find out whether it is effective to use English children songs to teach English pronunciation.
