Samuel Nfor will present results from a study which investigated Japanese students studying English who participated in an applied drama project emerged with improved pronunciation skills. Students’ sketches were recorded and transcribed to identify pronunciation problems so as to make informed interventions in a series of lessons and were again recorded and transcribed after the intervention to assess progress made in addressing the original pronunciation problems. The study also used questionnaires and interviews at the start and end of the course to gauge students’ enthusiasm and to analyse their self-assessment. The study concluded that language taught through applied drama supplied a motivation for positive change in the students'; pronunciation of English.
