Sammanfattning: Many studies and much research highlight the importance of English pronunciation. This study aims to find out how English teachers describe the difficulties their students face with English pronunciation and how English teachers think about improving their students' pronunciation. In this study, we use a qualitative study to have a better understanding of students' pronunciation in English. The research is based on a qualitative questionnaire shared with 14 qualified English teachers from three different schools, asking for their opinions about the students' pronunciation and the teaching of oral language skills and pronunciation possibilities. We identified three themes: 1-English sound system 2-pronunciation with flaws, 3-pronunciation training and listening exercises. The result shows that the teachers are aware of the difficulties that the Swedish students face in pronunciation and the strategies they can use in the class to improve their pronunciation. In addition to that, they also show that students make mistakes when pronouncing certain sounds. Our conclusion, as this study shows, is that there are other factors that cause students to make mistakes. One factor is that there are some phonemes in English that do not exist in the students' mother tongue, another factor is the students lack knowledge of pronunciation rules. According to research, students' pronunciation will be improved once the students are aware of these differences and factors that affect their pronunciation.
