The purpose of this research is to investigate the effect of using computer- assisted programs for teaching English pronunciation on students' performance in English Language pronunciation in Jordanian universities. To achieve the purpose of the study, a pre/post-test was constructed to measure students' level in English pronunciation. The sample of the study consisted of 149 third year students; (73) male students and (76) female students from Al Zaytoonah University during the second semester of the academic year 2010/2011. The subjects of the study were distributed into two groups (experimental and control). The experimental group was trained on English pronunciation using computer-assisted program while the control group was trained using the printed material. Descriptive statistical analyses were used (means and standard deviation) for the pre and post- tests of students' English pronunciation. Comparison statistical methods were used (Two Way ANOVA) analysis of variance to make a comparison between the control and the experimental groups and gender variable (male and female). The findings of the study indicated that there were statistically significant differences in the post- test between the control and the experimental groups in favor of the experimental group, and there was no statistically significant difference in the students' performance due to gender.
