Abstract:

An evaluation was undertaken as an in-house task to determine the effectiveness of a Navy training kit in improving English language pronunciation skills. A similar evaluation was made in a San Diego community college course. Twenty Filipino personnel volunteered as subjects in the Navy study, while eight Filipino subjects volunteered from the college program. The NAVTRA kit was used for ten subjects while the other ten served as untrained controls. All eight subjects in the college study were trained in the program. The results are presented, discussed, and criticized.
