Abstract

This study aims in investigating the effect of using multimedia in improving the quality of teaching English stress and intonation to university’s female students who are learning English as a foreign language. The sample of the study consisted of forty female students who are studying English language and literature at the University of Jordan/Aqaba. However, they were assigned to experimental and control groups. Data were collected within a four-week period via a pre-posttest design for equivalent groups. The findings of the study indicate that there were statistically significant differences (α=0.05) between the achievement of the experimental group and the control group in the use of English stress and intonation in favor of the experimental group which was taught via multimedia. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher suggests the following recommendations: 1. Multimedia should be introduced as a major tool for teaching English stress and intonation. 2. Further experimentation under different conditions for longer time duration is recommended.
