Pronunciation is regarded as one of the most significant parts to be developed in gaining speaking skills in English Language Teaching (ELT) classes. For the development of pronunciation skills, a lot of different approaches and ways have been employed. In choosing these ways and approaches, the perspectives of language teachers have constituted an important part. Thus, this study is designed with the aim of getting a deeper understanding of the perspectives of students from ELT department about pronunciation problems and pronunciation teaching. The research was designed on the basis of quantitative research design. A questionnaire adopted from Ducate and Lomicka (2009) was employed to learn the perspectives of ELT department students about pronunciation. Results have revealed that teacher candidates believe that they can improve pronunciation skills and pronunciation is as essential as other skills in ELT.
