The research was conducted to Semesters III and V students of English Department of IKIP Gunungsitoli, Nias. The population were 100 students. Each class consisted of 50 students. Based on random sampling technique, 16 students from Semester III and 16 students from Semester V were chosen as the sample. The instruments used to collect the data were three conversation topics : 1). At the Fruit Shop, 2) At the Garage, and 3) At the Post Office. The students were asked in pairs to take part in the conversations. These activities were carried out in front of the class. The conversation were recorded by using a tape recorder and digital camera. The conversation done by the students were analyzed and written in phonetics transcriptions. The analyses were based on Miles and Hubermans (1984) model. The findings show that the mispronunciation of English consonant consisted of the dental fricative consonant, the voiced palatoalveolar fricative consonant, the unvoiced aspirated consonant, the voiced word-final consonant, the change sound unvoiced alveolar fricative consonant, consonant [t] as a glottal stop [?], syllabic consonant, and the change of sound /ed/ in regular verb. On the other hand, the vowel mispronunciations were the diphthong, long and short vowels. Based on the findings it can be concluded that this results seen from the factors of linguistic, functional, social, facilities, environmental, psychological, articulation and pre-knowledge. The implication is that phonetically the lecturers should be trained and given adequate practice to pronounce the English consonants, and vowels.
