The purpose of this paper is to discover which pronunciation teaching techniques are preferred by language teachers, whether traditional or modern. It summarizes the trends in pronunciation teaching, lists traditional and modern pronunciation teaching techniques, and attempts to determine which techniques language teachers prefer using to teach pronunciation to their students. To help people learn languages, instructional software (tutorial drills and practice) is commonly used. In the teaching of pronunciation, learning, adaptation of authentic materials, and the use of instructional technology are all important.
