It has previously been indicated that shadowing has a beneficial effect on pronunciation in terms of prosody. This study analyzed the speech of Vietnamese learners in terms of changes in their accentand intonation, over a period of four months of shadowing practice. The results demonstrated that: 1) word accents increased in accuracy; 2) the intonation of the ka at the end of interrogative sentencesbegan to be inflected upwards; and 3) the intonation of the yo at theend of sentences expressing transmission of information continuedto be expressed as a rising tone, though it is supposed to be a fallingtone. It was the shift in focus towards phonetics that assisted Vietnamese learners in achieving overall improvement in their fourmonth period of pronunciation study.
