The present learning management system of learning pronunciation uses aural-oral drills. The proposed learning management system in this study has the additional innovatively integrated phonetic symbols (PS). The researchers are exploring the innovative use of phonetic symbols that cover all aspects of English words within the multimedia based Pronunciation Learning Management System to overcome the limitations of aural-oral approach. The phonetic symbols (PS) are to be integrated into the Multimedia Pronunciation Learning Management System (MPLMS) focused on the pronunciation of frequently mispronounced words. The major benefit of this innovative design is expected to help the novice users of the programme become active and independent English pronunciation learners in the context of non-native English speaking environment. The learners will be expected to benefit from this innovative approach to substantially improve their pronunciation competence.
