The teaching of pronunciation often lags behind the four main language skills: speaking, reading, listening, and writing. Pronunciation is very fundamental in meeting communicative communication criteria. This study aims to instill English pronunciation as acceptable as possible so that students have the confidence to start communicating, especially orally. The authors raise the following research questions 1) what difficulties do students face with regard to pronunciation? 2) Can the learning process with multilevel teaching techniques improve the pronunciation of the students? This study used classroom action research through an action cycle consisting of planning, implementing, observing, and reflecting (Kemmis, McTaggart, & Nixon, 2013). The participants are students of class VII.B SMP Negeri 3 Waypengubuan Lampung Indonesia, consisting of 31 students (17 famales and 14 males). The conclusions are that students really have difficulties in pronouncing English words as follows: the letter combination /ea/ is pronounced [i]. and /ea/ is pronounced [ǽ]; the letters /u/ still pronounced [u], /u/ pronounced as [a], and 'u' is not pronounced and also silent word a. 2) Applying multi level teaching can improve students' pronunciation skills up to 95.62% of acceptable pronunciation.
