1.1 Background of the Study English is an international language, in study English learners must master two main skills of communication. They are: oral skill and written skill. Pronunciation and speaking belong to oral skill; meanwhile writing and reading are involved in written skill. Teaching English to the elementary school students or to the young learners is different from teaching the higher-level students because the young learners have specific characteristic. Children prefer to have fun while they are learning something. In fact, it is common that children of six to twelve years of age, will learn better through fun, activities song, games, pictures, and listening the stories. So, the teacher here plays an important role in English instructions. He/she must have some other skills beside the language proficeincy. The teacher should have many strategies in teaching the young learner and has to be creative in making the language class become more enjoyable and meaningful for the students. Pronunciation is very important for students because it helps students to pronunce words or sounds words, a way in which a language is spoken English very well. So the teacher should choose a good method to interest students. The teacher should have alternative ways to teach pronunciation, for example by using song as a media in teaching English. In this case, song which can

motivate the students especially in speaking English. Visual media, such as song, is relatively cheap and easy to get compared to other media. There are some alternative techniques that can be used by the teacher in teaching pronunciation, such as picture, games, story telling, poems, songs, puzzle, matching and so on. From these many technique, song is a good way and may engage the students attention. Using songs have many benefit, first, the students can get a lot knowledge and entertaiment. Then, it can wipe out the boredom of the students from classroom situation, besides that it is one of technique of teaching and also material/subject of lesson. As Dale states ( 1992:4 ) that a teacher performs songs to motivate the learner and draw their attention to learn english. Song can be used to relax students and provide an enjoyable classroom atmosphere. So through using song, the students will be able to catch the lesson and to create the teacher to be more active in presenting material. As far as the writer knows, the English books of Junior High school or MTS are taught by the teacher usually uses songs. It is not only presented in the form of the text but also audiocassette. The students usually like something interesting, including singing. By using songs, the teacher tries to attarct more attention from his/her students in studying English, so that the teacher is not only to support but also to encourage his/her students to speak English fluently and confidently There are some previous study that are relevant to this study. The first researcher is Eka Khoirun Nisa (2010) who conducted a research entitled The Improvement Mastery Using English Songs To The First Year Students At SDN Ngulahan Tambakboyo. The result of the study shows that the writer has got positive result and that the use of English songs is

relatively good as the materials of teaching vocabulary. Actually English songs can improve the students Vocabulaty mastery and be the material that supports the English teaching learning process. So, the student can use the vocabularies in expressing ideas either written or spoken. The second research is entitled The Influence Of Using The English Song In Teaching Speaking To The Seventh Year Students Of MTS SALAFIYAH ASY.SYAFIIYAH JATIROGO 2008. The research of this study shows that using English song influence very much in oral teaching. It can be provoked through result of the average of the high percentage. The writer states, that the students have a positive attitude towards learning is presented by using song. It can be proveked as longas in activity classroom. The student are more active and involve themselves when the teacher askes them to sing in the classroom activity although in presenting song teacher uses simple.In addition, presenting song beings a related classroom atmosphere. So, the students are more enjoyable and spiritful in receving material in also making learning English alive and fun. Based on previous studies above, the writer concluded that song is one of the learning tools, which is very suitable applied in oral teaching. Beside it can motivate and supports the student to speak english actively and confidently it also perhaps the student to develop other skills in English. A teacher should have a technique in teaching, because it makes her/him easier in presenting the lesson. But it will be not applied well, if it is not supported by interesting material and also teaching aids as supplementary material, especially in teaching pronunciation. Therefore,

she/he has a challenge to find or create a way them interstedin learning pronunciation. How can students be motivated? By creating materials that suit their interest and create different activities in the classroom. Some of teaching media are important especially in teaching young learners (children at age six to twelve). Media means communicating with large numbers of people, in this case language is used by everyone as the media of communicating. Because of explanation, the writer uses song as a media of teaching pronunciation since they have some advantages for young learners. The students will can more interest study pronunciation by listening music, so that they can improve their English ability. Furthermore, they can learn english more enjoyable because there is no worry for them and they only feel fun during the learning process. 1.2 Statement of the Problem In accordance with the background of the study, the questions of this study are formulated as follows :
1. How are the activities of teaching pronunciation by using song at the fifth

year of SDN Ronggomulyo IV Tuban?

2. How are students responses toward the song at the fifth year of SDN

Ronggomulyo IV Tuban? 1.3 Objective of the Study The Objective of this study are :
1. To identify and to describe the activities of teaching pronunciation by

using song at the fifth year of SDN Ronggomulyo IV Tuban.

2. To know the students responses toward the song at the fifth year of SDN

Ronggomulyo IV Tuban? 1.4 Significance of the Study It is expected that this study give useful contribution to the English teachers to realize that songs play a very important role in the English teaching activities. Further, it can also establish teaching learning process in a good atmosphere and motivate the students during class activities. 1.5 Limitation of the Study In the research, the writer limits the problem as follows :
1. This study focuses on the activities of teaching pronunciation by using

2. This study is limited of using songs which are available in the textbook.

The topics of songs are alphabet, days, fruit, color and happy birthday. 1.6 Definition of the Key Terms The definitions are intented to make the readers have the same understanding or perception for same terms used in this study, there are also intended to avoid misinterpretation. There are as follows : 1. Pronunciation Pronunciation is the way in which a language is spoken. 2. Song Song is a short piece of music with words for singing.


2.1 Teaching Pronunciation When we teach English we need to be sure that our student can be understood when they speak. They need to be able to say what they want to say. This means that their pronunciation should be at least adequate for that purpose. In our teaching we want to be sure that the student can make the various sounds that occur in English Language. 2.2 Definition of Pronunciation Language is used for communication, and it is made up of sounds. Language teachers want to enable their pupils to use the language in communication. Diane (1996:64) says that since the sounds are the basic to any language, pronunciation is worked on from the beginning. Beside, In order to develop communicative efficiency in pronunciation the students need to understand how sounds are made and how stress is used. (Harmer 1992:22) Pronunciation is way for producing speech sounds. Pronunciation discusses about kinds of sounds and how are the sounds related to the words. The sounds which are produced in a language are almost with every fact of human life and communication. Penny Ur (1996:47) states that the concept of pronunciation may be said to include:


The sounds of the language or phonology Stress and rhythm Intonation Besides, native-speaker (competent users of the language) know how


to pronounce it. This knowledge is made up of three areas, sounds, stress and intonation (Jeremy Harmer, 1992:11). In brief, pronunciation has many elements, or contents, or components. 2.2.1 Speech Sounds Speech is essentially movement. However, accurately to pronounce the isolated words should be omitted by training in the right manner if people want to be understood. The sounds of English and isolated syllables, like notes or chords in music, only become intelligible when set in motion. This movement-its beats, its rhythm and its melody is the theme. 2.2.2 Phonetic Phonetics is a branch of linguistics dealing with sound features or qualities and their arragement into speech sound or phones. It is the study of speech sounds, the production, transmission, and reception. Phonectics is a symbol which represents the sound of word when it is pronounced. The students must learn them in order to read and writer. Especially, they need the phonetic symbols mainly to understand the pronunciation given in dictionary.

2.2.3 Phonetic Transcription The English words or sentences when they are written in their sounds is called transcription. There are two kinds transcription in English Pronunciation. They are phonetic transcription and phonemic transcription. Phonetic transcription is a kind of transcription in which allophones are given symbols. For example: The sounds of [k] in a word - cup [khp] in the beginning - skirt [sk:t] in the middle - make [meik] at the end 2.2.4 Classification of Sounds There are four kinds of sounds classification. They are: consonant sounds, vowel sounds, diphthong sounds, and thriphtong sounds. Consonant Sound A consonant sound is sound that is prounced with stopping of the air stream by the organs of speech. The list of consonant sounds are as follows:

English Phonetic Symbols /p/ /b/ /t/ /d/ /k/ /g/ /s/ /z/ /f/ /v/ /h/ /m/ /n/ /l/ /r/ /w/ // / / /t / /d3/ // / / / j/ / / /s/ Vowel Sound

[u:] [ri] [jet] [visn] [s]

Vowel sound is sound thatis produced without stopping of the air stream by the organs of speech. The list of vowel sounds are as follow: English Phonetic Symbols / / // // /e/ / : / / / / i: / // / : / / u: / // Phonetic Transcription [m] [kp] [ ht] [get] [g:l] [ g ] [si:] [st] [s:] [zu:] [pt]

That is represented phonetically by, sequences of two letters. They are the results of a movement of the tongue during the production of the sound. The following is the list of diphthong sound: English Phonetic Symbols / i / Key Words here Phonetic Transcription [hi]

The list of triphtong sound are as follows: English Phonetic Symbols ai au ei The Example of Key Word Higher, fire, tired, liar, desire, Our, hour, flour, flower player, crayon

2.2.5. Stress and Rhythm To make the communication fluent the speaker needs to know the stress and the rhythm of the speech. They must know the way to say word or sentence with the appropriate stress, and can use the stress to change the meaning of questions, sentence and phrases. Stress, rhythm and intonation should really be considered as a whole, for the are very closely connected of a single aspect of the language. 1. Stress


Stress is strength of voice on a particular syllables in a word. Jones (1986:141) says that the degree of force with which a speaker pronounces a sound or a syllable is called it stress. The degree of force is uttered. Stress is important for communication. A stressed syllable is produced by pushing more air out of the lugs in one syllable than neigh boring unstressed (Ladefoged, 1999:104). There are three kinds of stress: strong stress, secondary stress, and weak stress. a. Strong Stress Strong stress is the syllable which are pronounced more forcibly than neighbouring syllable. It is marked by before he stressed syllable. In general, the usual syllable stressseldom falls on the last syllable. Strong stress falls on the endings: a.-ee of personal names : refugee, legatee, trustee.

-ee, -oo, -oon of nouns : volunteer, profiteer,

bamboo, monsoon, balloon. c.-ette, esque : cigarette, picturesque. d. -ose and ese of adjectives : morose, Chinese,

Javanese. Strong stress falls on the syllable before the endings: a.-ic, -ical of the adjectives : tropic, political. b. -ish of verbs : finish, perish.

c.-ity : prosperity, calamity, opportunity.



[-al], [-n], [-s], [-n], is various spellings :

social, ocean, decision.


-graphy, -logy, -mater : geography, geology,

thermometer. b. Secondary Stress Secondary stress or medium stress is the stress which is indicated by mark [ , ] before the syllable.

Weak Stress Weak stress or unstressed is syllable which is pronounced

without much force. 2. Rhythm Rhythm is not national but universal phenomenon. The common type of English pattern is a balanced regular rhythm, regardless of the number syllable to be between the recurrent beats. An initial oral study and training to say sound clusters would improve the foreign students, skill with the English rhythm. Thus, Chinese is usually [t ini:z], but in a Chinese merchant [t, ini:z, m:t, nt ] for the sake of the rhythm.

Intonation Intonation is very important is expressing meaning and

especially in showing our fellings (e.g. surprise, anger, disbelief, gratitude, etc.) intonation is the pitch of the voice with which a voiced is pronounced.


There are three kinds of intonation pattern. They are rising tune, falling tune, and combined pattern. 1. Falling Tune Falling tune, the voice rises slightly earlier in the sentence and the falls on the key word being stressed. This pattern is used for statements and whquestions. The example are: I buy fruit in the market. Whats your name? Sit down, please! What do you say? 2. Rising Tune Rising tune, is the intonation where the voice rises sharply on the stressed syllable. This pattern is used for yes/no question, requests for repetition, and greetings. The example are as follows: Can I help you? Good morning, Doctor ! 3. Combined Pattern This pattern is used for pausing in the middle, lists, doubt, apology etc. The examples are as follows:
I go to school ... When they come.

I buy book, pencil, eraser and bag.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, .... Well, ... Im sorry.

2.2.7. Voiced, Voiceless, and Hissing Sound 1. Voiced Sound


Voiced sounds are speech sounds in which the air stream when passing the glottis makes the vocal cords vibrate. The sounds include the voiced sound are all vowels and consonants [b, z, l, r, etc]. 2. Voiceless Sound Voiceless or breathed sounds are speech sounds in which the air stream passes freely though the glottis without making the vocal cords vibrate. The voiceless sounds are the consonants e.g. [k, y, t, p, f, h, s, t, , ]. 3. Hissing Sound Hissing sounds are the sounds with the hissing sound ending of the last syllable. This is the ending sound with[s, z, iz] ending in the last syllable. 1. /s/ endings

It is used at the sounds [k, t, p, ] or voiceless 2. /z/ endings

It is used at the sounds [l, m, r, b, g, v] voiced 3. /iz/ endings

It is used at the sounds [s, , t, d].

2.3. Visual aids

This Skripsi is animed to give to an idea of how to each English especialy English pronunciation to the fifth year students of elementary school by focusing on the use of visual aids.


The teaching of English in big cities will be supported by the environment because song are supplied every where, but children who live in remote areas or small town in indonesia will have different in take because of the environment differences. It would not be fair the teaching of english in indonesia a will be easily understand by children of our classroom, should force them to cope with the give activity regardless, their different individual intake.There should be away to bridge this lameness and we should find out an interesting presentation in the teaching and learning. The minimize of lameness between the student knowledge and the english language, it would be better to make and optimum use of teaching aids, but in this skripsi the writer wants to use song as a part of teaching aids. The help of such song since they are considered to help learness acquiring more comprehensible that is input good comprehensible input will push the speaking skill take place. 2.4. Songs Songs are part of entertainment that is loved by everyone in the world. They are sing by someone as a symbol of happiness or sadness. They are very simple so the people can sing them according to each of their level or age A song is short piece of music with words for singing (Logman Dictionary of contemporary English). Songs are poem which caries message manifested into music or melody it is kind of literary work. Literature is not artifical word only but it is also knowledge about humanity with all aspects. Traditional songs ofter


contain obscure or out of date language, which may out weight their usefulness, but they do have the advantages of being part of English speaking culture. Sometimes people have a special song, which is always sing every time repeatedly. It can happen because they have the same experiences as words in the content of the songs. We can see many people sing spiritual songs in the church, mosque, in the festival of song, ever a lot parent let their children sleep by singing song. Among young people, to sing a song is a hobby, or pupil to pupil. It means that teacher always give the people information and than the pupils take knowledge and skills from teachers. In language learning process, the teacher can prepare the materials to be taught in presenting the materials teacher must concord with technique and method. It is important to consider where and when they are teaching. The situation must support the teaching learning process. Song and rhythm are an essential part of language learning process for young learners, students will be enjoy in learning English with singing songs English lyrics, and this matter will be support motivating of students to advances their English language. We have all experienced song, which we just can get out of over heads. Songs make it easier to imitate and remember language than word, which are Just Spoken . Some songs are good for singing, other for doing action to the music, and the best one is good for both! You can use songs to


teach children the sounds and rhythm of English to reinforce structure and vocabulary, or as total physical response activities-but above all to have fun. We can use songs at any stage in a lesson: for example, at the beginning to mark the change from the previous subject to english in the middle of lesson as a break from another, more concentrate activity: or the end, to round a lesson off. Songs can also help to create a sense of group identity. Pop song are usually best used in listening activities. We need to select the song we use with care. Is the language too difficult? Can you hear the words? is the subject matter suitable? older and children enjoy working with popular songs so much that they are wiling to tackle diffult language and will often sing along when the song is played. We can also use songs as backgroud music while the children are working quietly and on the another task it is suprising how much they adsorb unconsciously. The chapter contais a very small selection of songs to use in class some sources of more songs are listed in the further reading section. Another useful book is music and songs in this series, which has a section on young learners, and very comprehensive bibliography. These are example of songs : 1. Alphabet ABCDEFG HIJKLMNOP Q R S T U and V

Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to dear (name of child) Happy birthday to you 2.5. Teaching using song There are a lot various methods, which can be applied in presenting songs. In oral activities, the teacher can use some ways. Griffee (1990) recommends using short, slow songs for beginning level students and discussed activities such as creating song word puzzle, drawing a song, or showing related picture. With higher levels, he suggests using song that tell stories, moving toward short, fast song, and finnaly, longer, fast song that have fewer high frequency vocabulary items. Mostly in higher levels, the students may summarize orally the action or theme of a song or give oral presentations about a song or musician, playing nusical selection for the class. To involve whole class students can fill out response sheets about each presentation, answering questions about the featured topic, something new they learned, and something they enjoyed. In ESL/EFL, there are affective, cognitive, and linguistic reasons for singing or using songs follow all grounds in learning theory : 1. Affective reason. The teachers have long recognized the needfor students to have a positive attitude in regard to learning. Krashen (1982) explains that for optimal learning to occor the affective filter must be weak. A weak


affective filter means that a positive attitude toward learning in present. If the affective filter is strong the learner will not seek language input, and in turn, not be oper for language acquistion. The practical application of the affective filter hypothesis is that teacher must provide a positive atmosphere conducive to language learning. Songs are one method for achieving a weak affective filter and promoting language learning. 2. Cognitive reason. Songs also present opportunities for developing automaticity, which is the main cognitive reason for using songs in the classroom. Gatbonton and Segalowist (1988-473) define automaticity as a component of language fluency which involves both knowing what to say and producing language rapidly without pauses. Using songs can help automatize the language development process. 3. Linguistic reason. Besides automatization, there is also a linguistic reason for using songs in the classroom, some songs are excellent examples of colloquial English, that is the language of informal conversation and have some phases. Of course, the majority of language most ESL student will encounter is in fact informal. Using songs can prepare students for the genuine language they will be faced with.



3.1 Research Design The research design in this research is a qualitative research. Qualitative research is not related closely to the number and calculation, but this research is explained about the word. This study is descritive it is design to obtain information concerning current conditions of phenomenon and directed toward determining the nature of a situation, as it exist at the time of study (Ary, Etal, 1979:322). A case study is used to describe the problem deeply, it was conducted to describe how the condition of something and why it happens. This study attempts to describe the activities done by the teacher in the fifth year of elementary school in implementing song in the teaching of English, the advantages of teaching learning process by using song, the results of the use of song in the teaching-learning process in the classroom. 3.2 Subject of the Study The subject of the study are the fifth year of SDN Ronggomulyo IV Tuban. The researcher choose this school with the consideration that the fifth year of SDN Ronggomulyo IV Tuban has enough students, because the class consist of 38 students. So, it can represent to subject of the study.


3.3 Method of collecting Data To provide the required data and information, the writer conducts, observation and interview : a. Observation Observation is the research method to get data by doing the observation directly to get the description about the subject and it uses a field notes. It can be done by everyone who has normal sense. In this matter, the writer to to identify and to describe the activities of teaching pronunciation by using song at the fifth year of SDN Ronggomulyo IV Tuban. b. Interview Interview is the dialogue that is done by an interviewer to get information from the interviewer, (Suharsini, 2002:132). The researcher uses this method to get the data about teaching pronunciation by using song. Beside that, this interview is also given to know the students responses toward the song in teaching pronunciation. 3.4 Instrument of collecting data The important thing to achieve the accuracy of the data in this research is an instrument. Arikunto (2006:148) states that an instrument is a device or a facility used by the researcher in collecting data or information. The instrument should be made in such a way that the data on whichh are based can be as valid as possible. Moreover, the instrument can indicate whether the research is successful or not.


1. Field Notes

These notes are used to record qualitative information obtained during the treatments. The record is about specific behaviour, which shows the problems the students encounter, or the directions that can be applied in doing the next cycle. The qualitative records are made to note the negative or positive changes that happen during the process. (see appendix 1) 2. Interview List Interview list is a list of questions which are given to interviewee from interviewer to obtain some informations. Beside, Fraenkel (1993:385) describe that interview is an important way for the researcher to check the accuracy of the impressions of what he or she gained through observation, and the purpose of interviewing people is to find but their mind, what they think or how they feel about something. In this research, the writer gives eight questions to the students of SDN Ronggomulyo IV Tuban to know the students responses toward the song in teaching pronunciation. (see appendix 2) 3.5 Technique of Data Analysis By observing the Elementary School Teacher of SDN

Ronggomulyo IV Tuban in teaching pronunciation, it can help the researcher to know more about how to teach pronounciation for the young children by using song. In the qualitative data research, data are collected using observation and interview. The non statistic analysis is used for the qualitative data to read the data source without any statistical account. Data analysis is the


process of organizing and arranging the data to design, category and basic explanation, so that the theme can be found and formulated which is suitable with the data. In this study, the writer analyze; it is the analyzing of the data that available based on the topic. The procedure of analyzing of the data as follows:

Selecting the answer from interview and observation to know

whether the data provided are sufficient or not 2. problem

3. 4.

Classifying and analyzing the data based on the research

Confirming the data interview with observation data Interpreting the data.



The result of this study and the discussion are presented in this chapter. After doing research by the instruments, the writer will explain one by one the result of the research, below : 4.1 The Activities of Teaching Pronunciation by using Songs 4.1.1 Elicitation The teacher during the teaching learning process used some song to facilitate the students to grab or to understand what she taught.

5.2 Suggestion Based on the result of study, the writer has found several facts, which support the teaching process, such as students motivation, condition of the classroom and the teachers creation. Each factor is related to each other. Teaching learning process cannot get well if one of them is ignored. If the teacher wants to have activities in the classroom to be more active, the teacher must use other visual aids to make the students understand the lesson easily. For examples use flash card, games or pictures that are related to the English material so that the students will be more interested. The teacher should correct the students pronunciation every time, so the students can spell the right pronunciation. And the teacher should speak loudly and clear so that the students can repeat song after him. The points to the students are they should really pay attention with the materials which are given. They should not be afraid of making mistake in learning English because while making mistake, students also practicing English and it makes the students be able to improve their language skill. Besides that, they should study pronunciation to improve their speaking. Because with the right pronunciation, they can spelling the words well.
