English Learning Innovation Using Flash Card Media to Improve Students' Understanding of Vocabulary and Pronounciation
Learning a language is not only being able to communicate with the language, but also
knowing and understanding the meaning contained in the spoken word or expression. In
learning languages, especially English, most students have difficulty in speaking.
Difficulty speaking is usually caused by difficulty expressing ideas verbally, limited
vocabulary, limited grammatical skills so that it is difficult to speak with the correct rules,
limited ability to pronounce words (pronounciation), making it difficult to pronounce the
words spoken correctly, lack of courage to speak for fear of being wrong. To facilitate
speaking skills, there are several effective ways to try, including: increase vocabulary
(vocabulary), reading aloud. As an English teacher, it is very important to know the
learning strategies to make the learning environment more enjoyable. That is why
teachers who teach English need several strategies in the teaching and learning process,
such as using flash card media to introduce vocabulary and pronunciation.
