Abstract: Learning a second language is not an easy task. Throughout the learning journey, learners make errors and have their errors corrected by their teachers, until they learn this second language. This study attempts to investigate the pronunciation errors of the native Arabic learners, who are learning English as a second language. This study focuses on the pronunciation errors that result from the impact of the vernacular dialects of the native speakers of Arabic. These errors are investigated through contrastive and error analysis studies shedding the light on the Arabic linguistic input that causes this first language transfer and the repair strategies that the learners attempt to implement to overcome these pronunciation problems.
