Many people in Vietnam pronounce the vowel "e" in "check" as "é" in "écouter" (French), is that correct?

[ɛ] is pronounced as in Vietnamese e "to fear", and [e] is as in Vietnamese tê "numb".
The ê in the French word "bête" [bɛt̪] is a closer bet for check.
In Hanoi Vietnamese, the pronunciation of sách [sɛk] without the dấu sắc (rising accent), is a closer, and perhaps easier model for you. Just change the "s" to the English "ch" sound.
