Abstract
This study focuses on the importance of combining phonological knowledge with rhythm, melody and syntax rules in teaching English intonation affected by stress for Vietnamese students, verified by Experimental Phonetics. The hypothesis is that the English Rhythmic patterns and melodic aspect will help students to identify their intonation mistakes and change from negative to positive attitude towards practicing intonation melodically affected by stress. The final target is to improve Vietnamese students’ pronunciation skill as well as catching the main idea in the conversation in order to have successful communication in English.
