Abstract

Intensive English Course is a course held in the first semester of English Department in Lambung Mangkurat University. This course is supposed to focus on „fixing‟ the students‟ pronunciation in English. Most students‟ mother tongue is Banjarese; with Hulu Dialect which has fewer vowels sounds than English. Sound /ɔ/ doesn‟t exist in Banjarese with Hulu Dialect. The speakers tend to pronounce the word „sekolah‟ into „sakulah‟. The vowel /e/ is replaced by /a/ and the vowel /o/ is changed into /u/. Therefore, pronunciation practice class is needed in order that the students really pronounce English. The long-live strategy of drilling; „Listen and Repeat‟ has always been implemented. However, it might be possible either the students or the lecturer experience boredom. This study investigates whether another alternative in practicing the students‟ pronunciation might vary the steps during the lecture, in which one of them is the taboo game. Moreover, the increase of vocabulary mastery will also be considered by implementing the game. Taboo is a word game by using flash cards with a main word and four clue words. Observation and questionnaire is used to gather the data related to the implementation of those activities. Keywords: practice, pronunciation, vocabulary, taboo
