Three tools were developed, validated and implemented by the researchers. They were: 1) English Pronunciation Skills Test, 2) Performance Observation Sheet for KG English Pronunciation Teaching and 3) Open Interviews with the participants by the end of experimentation. The findings revealed that the proposed program had a significant positive effect on the 2nd year KG prospective teachers’ Pronunciation Learning and Teaching.
