“This thesis investigates the relationship between musical elements and oral prosody with the aim of enhancing the teaching of English language skills. The study focuses on four main musical elements, namely dynamics, intonation, agogic, and phrasing, and their connection to corresponding elements in oral prosody, such as intensity patterns, rhythm, durational patterns, intonation, and phrasing. The research objectives include understanding the impact of these musical elements on oral prosody, identifying effective methods for teaching oral prosody in English, and exploring the potential use of music as a pedagogical tool for teaching oral prosody in the English language and other languages. The literature review section provides an overview of teaching a foreign language, emphasizing the speaking skill in English and various teaching methods, including communicative language teaching and task-based language teaching. Linguistic concepts related to prosody and oral prosody of the English language are explored in detail, including prosody intensity patterns, rhythm, durational patterns, intonation, and phrasing. The role of music in teaching a foreign language is also examined, highlighting the definition of music, its elements, and their relevance to oral prosody”.
