Many English language programs, including teacher education institutions are still defective for they do not incorporate the current perspective of pronunciation teaching within their instruction. Speaking the English language competently partly requires the ability to produce its sounds in ways that are intelligible to other speakers. In fact, the conscious awareness of pronunciation features that can obviously be used by a competent speaker helps for listening competently.Hence, one can assert that teaching intelligible pronunciation is addressing the communicative needs of learners. This book, thus, investigates the teaching of English pronunciation in the teacher education program in Addis Ababa University. It focuses on the attitudes of teachers towards pronunciation, the goal of pronunciation teaching (intelligibility or native like performance) , and the procedure of presentation. The results are analyzed and interpreted in terms of the most sensible principles of the area. This manuscript,should, therefore, serve as an input to ESL material designers, teacher educators, language teachers and ESL/EFL learners.
