A COMPARATIVE STUDY IN TEACHING PRONUNCIATION BETWEEN USING ENGLISH SONG AND POETRY AT THE FIRST YEAR OF SMP
INTRODUCTION
Learning  language  means  learning  to  communicate.  In  learning  a  language  one  can not  run  away  from  learning  its  sound,  because  language  is  a  system  of communication by sound. Learning language will automatically involves learning its pronunciation. Pronunciation is the most important component in phonology (Crystal, 1985  in  Belda,  1995:1).  Robbinet  (1978:64  in  Mukti,  2000:12)  also  states  that pronunciation  is  one  of  the  most  important  aspects  of  learning  a  language.  Besides that, pronunciation is one of the English aspects which support English speaking skill so  that  the  speakers  can  express  their  idea  easily  and  understandably.  Pronunciation can be developed by using many different techniques, and there are many techniques that can be used to teach or to improve students’ pronunciation. Among many ways that  can  be  applied  in  teaching  pronunciation,  the  writer  will  use  English  song  and poetry.  Papa  and  Lantorno  (1979;  viii)  state  that  introducing  song  in  the  classroom can  solve  most  of  the  problems  concerning  motivation.  Moreover,  songs  can  be profitably  introduced  by  all  teachers,  whatever  method  they  use,  and  are??????
