The result of the data analysis shows that the students produced 10 shifts in vowel sound. From each vowel shift, 9.37% shift is produced in vowel sound [i:] into [aɪ], [ɪ], [ε]; 6.25% shift produced in vowel sound [ɪ] into [ə], [ε]; 9.37% shift produced in vowel sound [ε] shift to [ɪ], [ə], [i:]; 12.50% shift produced in vowel sound [æ] into [ɑ:], [ʌ], [ε], [ə]; 18.75% shift produced in vowel sound [ə] shift to [ɪ], [ʌ], [ε], [ɔ], [ʊ], [ɑ:]; 3.12% shift produced in vowel sound [ʌ] into [ɔ]; 6.25% shit produced in vowel sound [u:] into [ʊ], [ɔʊ]; 15.62% shift produced in vowel sound [ɔ:] into [ɑ:], [ʌ], [aʊ], [ə], [ɔ]; 6.25% shift produced in vowel sound [ɔ] into [ə], [ɔ:]; and 12.50% shift is produced in vowel sound [ɑ:] into [ε], [ɪ], [ə], [ʌ].
