As there are many problems faced by the lecturers deal with the students’ pronunciation, then this paper
is aimed at revealing and describing the errors in pronouncing English sounds made by the English
learners because of the negative transfer from their first language (L1). Mix method was used in this
study, it began with the qualitative one and then to know the percentage of each data, quantitative one
was applied. The data were got from the recording of speaking activities and interview and then it was
transcribed into broad transcription. This study does not include the narrow transcription, therefore no
suprasegmental features found in this paper. The results of this study revealed that most of the students
made some errors in pronouncing English sounds which they cannot found in their first language such
as the sound /æ/, /∫/, /θ/, /ð/, and /ʒ /. The result is hoped to be able to give some input to the English
teacher and lecturer on the common errors made by the students in pronouncing English sounds and
lead them to improve their teaching methods in order to help their students in pronouncing new sounds
found in the target language.
