Do you think Syllable Stress is important? It must be important, but which do you think is more important for adults to study English pronunciation or grammar at first? Which is for you to understand leaners' English easier, correct sentences grammatically but bad pronunciation or good pronunciation but incorrect sentences grammatically?

Do you think Syllable Stress is important? It must be important, but which do you think is more important for adults, to study English pronunciation or grammar at first? Which is for you to understand learners' English easier, grammatically correct sentences , but bad pronunciation, or good pronunciation, but grammatically incorrect sentences ?

That is a very good question! I would have to say that for me, clear pronunciation makes it more simple to understand students. Grammar is very important as well, however, it's much easier to understand someone who doesn't have a perfect grammar, than to understand someone who mispronounces words.

Oh, I see. Pronunciation is more important for you. Well, what rules are there we should remember about Syllable stress? If we put stress on wrong syllable, does it sound a different word? Could you guess a correct word? Have you ever had funny story by students' mispronunciation?

Oh, I see. Pronunciation is more important for you. Well, what rules are there we should remember about Syllable stress? If we put stress on a wrong syllable, does it sound like a different word? Could you guess the correct word? Have you ever had a funny story by students' mispronunciation?

There are several rules about stressing syllables. They are different for nouns, verbs, adjectives and there are rules about different word endings. However, these rules might be too complicated. I think it's best to learn through trial and error and by practicing speech. Most of the time I can guess the word, but sometimes it's difficult.

As you said, it must be best to learn through trial,error and practice. Even if I studied and tried to remember the rules, though I would not remember them. I sometimes feel what a good guesser a teacher is. Especially what beginners speak is not sentences but words, moreover mispronunciation, nevertheless a teacher try to understand and communicate with students. By the way, when you listen to a student's syllable stress and intonation, do you know if this student's pronunciation will improve or be hopeless?

Yes, I think it's always best to learn a language by heart, instead of memorizing all the rules. Oh, I don't think anyone is hopeless! I think with enough practice everyone can improve and become a decent speaker. What is the biggest challenge you're facing when you're studying English?

It's kind of you to say "anyone is hopeless" and cheer me up. The biggest challenge is speaking for me. Even if I try to speak carefully, once I begin to start I speak carelessly despite my will. Even if it's a very simple sentence. For example, " They are student." I know I should say"They are students." and more difficult thing is about tense, While I am speaking I tend to speak with mixture it.

Yes, no one is hopeless. :) Don't worry, you will overcome these difficulties. I always tell my students there is no shame is slowing down when you speak, as it gives you enough time to think about your sentences, and it also makes it easier for others to understand you.

Thank you for the concern. I think I have a bad habit,which I speak something without thinking. Do you think if I can get over it? Could you give me some good advice?
