چکیده مقاله:

Foreign language learners tend to avoid phonological difficulties and simply transfer sounds whether from their L۱ or any pre-existing L۲. Phonological awareness (PA) gives students an active role in understanding their own potential in improving pronunciation through several methods. However, such methods are likely to be restricted to only passive learning methods, such as repetition, reading and lectures. In this study, ۱۱۸ Japanese students of Spanish were tested in their articulation ability of the Spanish liquid [r] segment; the students were divided into two groups: the control group (GA), composed by ۵۹ students, which did not undergo any special PA training, and the PA trained group (GB), composed as well by ۵۹ students, which underwent only one PA intervention. The articulatory accuracy rate of GA for such segment after their first year of language acquisition was ۲۷.۱۶, while for GB it was ۷۲.۵۴ after the PA intervention. The improvement of GB after the PA intervention was highly significant in regard to the learners’ phonological accuracy (p < ۰.۰۰۱)
