While intelligible pronunciation could facilitate the message transmission, unintelligible pronunciation could bring into miscommunication. However, many studies reveals that EFL learners have some problems when it come into intelligible pronunciation, including Thai EFL learners of Addirasat Al Islamiah School. This study is conducted to describe pronunciation errors made by Thai EFL learners of Addirasat Al Islamiah School. This study uses descriptive qualitative research design since it is aimed at describing the phenomenon in a natural way. The procedures are adapted from Johnson and Christensen (2012) covering: 1) determine research questions; 2) design the study; 3) collect the data; 4) analyze the data (comparative analysis); 5) generate findings; 6) validate findings; and 7) report. The data is collected through audio recording. Instruments used to collect the data are a short dialogue and audio recordings. Besides, the researcher is the key human instrument in this study. The result of the analysis shows that there are three kinds of pronunciation errors; error in consonants (62.8%), vowels (23.2%), and diphthongs (14%). Error in the consonants is the most frequent pronunciation error made by the students. Influence of the subjectsÔÇÖ first language, romanization of Thai language, little exposure to the target language, learnersÔÇÖ attitude of being less confident and teachersÔÇÖ Thai style pronunciation are believed as the potential causes. The need for more in-depth research regarding studentsÔÇÖ pronunciation problems could not be ignored.

In addition, special programs need to be introduced and implemented to help students improve their pronunciation. 4
