    Abstract

    This scientific work is an experimental research. It was aimed to investigate the effectiveness of Audio Lingual Method in teaching vowels pronunciation to Junior High School students. The subjects of this study were the students of 8C, 8D, and 8E of SMPN 32 Semarang; which consist of 32, 29, and 30 students. This research was conducted in seven meetings, started on 5 th of March 2015 to 28 vii th of March 2015. On the first meeting, the pre-test was conducted. While on the second to the sixth meetings were for the treatment sessions. Here, I gave some treatments. I gave treatments using ALM to experimental group (8C), Songs to the first control group (8D) and Fidel Charts to the second control group (8E). The seventh meeting was the last meeting of this research. In the last meeting, the post-tets was conducted. Based on the data analysis, it could be concluded that the use of Audio Lingual Method is more effective than the use of Songs and Fidel Charts as a media in teaching vowel pronunciation. This is shown by the comparison between the result of Initial Pre-test from and that of post-test score. The mean score of experimental group using Audio Lingual Method improved by 10 points; from 67 to 77. The score of Control group using Songs improved by 2 points; from 65 to 67. Meanwhile, the mean score of the control group using Fidel Charts improved by one point from 66 to 67. In line with it, the students‟ motivation in learning English after getting treatment using ALM is higher than the students‟ motivation that are taught by using Songs and Fidel Charts as the media. The students‟ motivation score in Exper imental Group is 3.14, 2.97 for Songs group and 2.93 for Fidel Charts group. These score were included into high motivation in learning English. By referring to the result of the study, I suggested Audio Lingual Method be used to teach pronunciation, especially vowel pronunciation of English words.
