Title : Using Film Dubbing Technique to Enhance VLU Freshmen’s Acquisition of English Pronunciation and Motivation
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Film dubbing has emerged recently as one of the most effective language teaching techniques in teaching pronunciation. It utilizes authentic film clips, with which learners dub the voices of muted characteres. In contrast with the traditional approach to pronunciation teaching, the method of film dubbing not only offers a unique opportunity for the imitation of English pronunciation but also enhances students’ motivation in learning speaking process. In spite of the inspiration from film dubbing, not many studies offered empirical evaluation of the efficiecy of film dubbing projects in the EFL context. Therefore, this study aimed to find out the reason why freshmen at Van Lang University (VLU) pronounced incomprehensibly, how film dubbing could help them to improve their utterances and whether they liked learning to speak in that way or not. Action research method was used in combination with various tools for data collection such as voice recording, observation and note-taking, questionnaire and interview in focus group. These methods also helped to see more obviously how students made progress in pronunciation, overcame presssure and shyness to pronounce words and how much they were motivated by film dubbing activities. Proved successfully, film dubbing could help a lot of students, especially VLU students to improve their pronunciation and motivation, which gave them an essential background for further English communication.
