EFFECTS OF SOUND RECOGNITION MULTIMEDIA ON ARAB STUDENTS' ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION

F. Banafa

American University of Beirut (LEBANON)
This study examines the potential benefits associated with the use of interactive multimedia sound recognition on participants’ English pronunciation over a period of time. It also investigates the participants’ perceptions of the efficacy of multimedia technology to enhance the acquisition of their pronunciation skills. The participants are Arab college students from five Arab countries. The effect of technology on English pronunciation was investigated using the Rosetta Stone CD-ROM.
Face-to-face recorded interviews, oral production interview scale, and an open-ended questionnaire were used for data collection. Results indicated that the Rosetta Stone CD-ROM improved students’ pronunciation skills. Implications of the study were discussed.
The findings showed that students’ mean in the post intervention is higher than the pre test intervention.
