This research aims to propose a specific teaching approach designed to promote students’ autonomous learning as an important attribute in learning process, especially during this pandemic situation. The development of technology-enhanced learning and also current pandemic situation require all agents in education to adapt and adopt due to the flexibility and the effectiveness of teaching and learning. Besides, preparing autonomous learners, which are not in-born but needs a well-designed and a well-developed formulation, is highly recommended. By utilizing a friendly-user mobile device as teaching media, students will be more likely to practice to be an autonomous learner. This paper focuses on the use of Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL) in the teaching of English Pronunciation given to first semester students of English Language Education, Pakuan University. Those students need to be exposed by the use of MALL in order to be autonomous learners and to be able to decide why, how and what to learn.
