On the basis of acoustic analysis of Chinese negative sentences produced by elementary learners and native speakers, the paper aims to examine the differences between learners and native speakers in term of full range, sub-group range, intonation pattern, genders and features of negative word. The paper also studied the acquisition of Chinese intonation and further proposed teaching strategy. The findings of the paper can be taken as reference in Chinese intonation teaching.
