The purpose of this study is to investigate in what ways 5 Ujang and 5 Nyai pronounce 20 vocabularies contain p and f sounds, whether or not they are interchangeable. Ujang, is a common nick name for Sundanese male meanwhile Nyai is for Sundanese female. As many as 10 students (5 Ujang and 5 Nyai) took part in this study voluntarily. Sundanese people in their language are well-known to pronounce p and f interchangeably due to those habitual sounds in their mother tongue words. Children were divided into 2 groups according to their gender (girls and boys) and age (11 and 12 years). The study applied Developmental Research as the design of the research with 4 stages of ADDA (Analyze, Design, Develop, and Apply) with a qualitative approach. The initial data were collected then analyzed, how many vocabularies they have mispronounced. The scaffolded design of correct pronunciation was then modeled in Go-Scaffo Application (GSA), an android-based application. The subjects were asked to imitate the GSA sounds. The model was then developed based on the results and re-applied to the subjects of the research. Pre-test and post-test scores shown the results were significantly changed into betterment. The quality of pronouncing the syllable and the intonation was also bettered.
