Than Chhorn


Second language sound speech is a complexity sound system for non-native learners to acquire. This article aimed to investigate the effects of Second language sound speech systems to improve learners’ speaking proficiency; it also examined how learners develop their speaking productions. The study showed that the problems which learners have faced in their expressive speaking were Second language sound speeches such as pronunciation errors, accents, word stress, and intonation. The study also identified how fast learners can improve their speaking and what perspectives they carry out to develop their speaking proficiency with Second language sound speeches. To provide exact evidences for this scientific research in order to ensure that the differences were significant or not, a paired sample t-test of data analysis tool was constructed to result that. The current study resulted that there were differential variables of significance of students’ problematic sound speeches within speaking improvement between the cognitive groups and encouraged groups. According to data analysis, the means of cognitive group were greater than encouraged group’s means. As a result, cognitive group learnt and understood Second language sound speeches faster than the encouraged group did.
