Mispronunciation is a common problem among second language learners due to both suprasegmental and segmental features. This paper explores college students’ mispronunciation and seeks ways to overcome this problem in the shortest time possible. A common reading text was used as a platform to accommodate this study. The respondents for this study consist of eight college students who are currently pursuing their diploma in a local university. This study employed two common tools to collect data; pronunciation drills, and tongue twisters. The data were analysed using both qualitative and quantitative methods. The analysis of the data revealed that the suprasegmental features were more dominant than segmental features in their mispronunciation and the short treatments had help in correcting the students’ mispronunciation effectively.
