Thesis Proposal Proposed Title: 1. The Analysis of Students’ Errors and Teacher’s Use of Spoken Corrective Feedback 2. Phonological Interference in Pronouncing English Consonants as Student’s Source Error Overview: Analyzing of Students’ Errors and Teacher’s Use of Spoken Corrective Feedback Error is mostly considered as inseparable part of language learning. Not only does it show the learner’s progress in comprehending material but also it signals the acquiring of the language. Conversely, the errors can be negatively impacted if they are barely treated well either by teacher or instructor. They will be something which are repeatedly done by the learners due to they never know the errors they do. The teacher, therefore, is required to apply the strategies to treat the students’ error made during the learning process. There are number of ways which are possibly used by the teachers. But to simplify and to limit the research, the researcher will only observe the spoken corrective feedback applied by the teachers during the classroom as a teacher’s strategies to treat students’ errors. The errors made by the students can surely be varied. It is tempting as well to analyze type of error emergences for the students, teacher’s use of spoken corrective feedback and preferences of using certain of that, and how much the effectiveness of using certain feedback towards the students. Phonological Interference in Pronouncing English Consonants as Student’s Source Error When two language come into contact, the gap between those two languages will certainly outcome an interference. Whether it is positive or negative interference will much more depend on how much those two languages are similar or not. The contact will result negatively when these two languages are much different. The common difference would be on how the words are pronounced and the existed sounds on the languages. Phonological interference usually occurs when the learners mispronounce the target language. Instead, they pronounce with the sounds that are existed in their first language or the similar sounds as target language. This present study will analyze what kinds of phonological interference that occur. In addition, it will also examine what consonants that seem to be mispronounced most. Factors contributing to the error causes will also be figured out along with how the teachers use some ways to reduce the phonological interference that possibly happen in the class.
