This research deals with the descriptions and analyses on phonological systems of English
and Indonesian languages which supply several similarities and differences. Similarities do
not make the seventh semester students of the English Department of Tadulako University
have trouble in learning L2 (English), but the differences between two languages do.
Therefore, the parallels are not the problematic cases in the learning of L2 phonological
system anyway. Based on the collected data, some differences are discovered such as
phonemic oppositions and phonetic features, and so are their similarities. The approach
applied in this study was qualitative. The data were collected via observation, interviews, and
recording which were constructed in the form of field-notes. This study involved 20 English
students of the English Department of Tadulako University. They have already had
experiences in learning English but they still have problems in pronouncing English words.
