Abstract

Speaking as a productive skill, seems intuitively the most important of all the four language skills, because it can distinctly show the correctness and language errors that a language learner makes. Pronunciation is one important aspect of speaking English, it can be said that basic skills must be understood before deep learning about speaking. Since Indonesians are not native speakers, most of the students have difficulty understanding and digesting the correct pronunciation in English. The ability to speak using accurate pronunciation is very important. If we do mispronounce while speaking, it makes the listener difficult to understand what we are talking about. Furthermore, it can be one of the factors which can lead to the conversation breakdown. The use of Tongue Twister Technique can improve students fluency and accuracy in speaking English. Therefore Tongue Twister is needed to motivate the students to learn about pronunciation. The objective of the research is to describe and analyze the effectiveness of tongue twister whether itcan improve or not the fluency and accuracy inspeaking English. The method used in this study was Experimental method that focus on pre-experimental research design with one group Pretest and Posttest design. The instruments to conduct the research were observation checklist, observation fieldnote, test and rubric assessment. The finding shows that, Tongue Twister Technique is effective to improve fluency and accuracy in speaking English. As shown the gain of students’ accuracy mean score from pretest is 47.00 and posttest is 82.75. The table value of significance level of 2 tails above is 1.729 and the value is 15.726,also the score of fluency in speaking skills shows before being taught by using Tongue Twister because the mean score is 49.25, the mean increase becomes 81.75. It means that the posttest’s score is higher than pretest’s score.The table value of significance level of 2 tails above is 1.729 and the value is 6.842. So that, value is higher than table (15.726 > 1.729), and (6.842 > 1.729) means the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is not rejected and the null hypothesis (Ho) is rejected, after the students treated by Tongue Twister Technique, it shows that students’ speaking skills have been improved. Finally, it can be concluded that Tongue Twister Technique is effective to improve students’ fluency and accuracy in speaking English.
