Abstract

One major concern about the EFL Saturday courses at UNAN-Managua is if the students are acquiring a good level of proficiency on pronunciation. It is a strong belief that EFL learners have great difficulties on pronunciation due to negative transfer; especially with difficult twin sounds which do not have an equivalent in the mother tongue of non-native speakers. This research was applied to a group of 15 students of the Saturday program of the English Major at UNAN. To this purpose were applied one survey to the students, two interviews, and several class observations. There were interesting findings about the subject and the most important is the concern to create phonological awareness in the students to improve their pronunciation.
