    Abstract
    Language learning has always been an essential part of effective communication and development. Being accurate in using the second language makes it necessary to be professional in all aspects of L2. One of these neglected but important areas is stress. Stress is melody of conversation and each language has its own stress patterns. Accordingly, negative and positive interferences may happen for EFL/ESL learners. In this regard, the present research provided a contrastive study on the stress patterns of Persian and English. Exploring similarities and differences can help learners to have better understanding of accent when using English language and speak fluently.
