  • You can mix in a little bit of intonation throughout your lesson on and have fun with intonation.

  • You can, for example, use humming dialogues over home.

  • Huh?

  • You could also give students one sentence and get them to say it in lots of different ways to highlight different emotions.

  • What you doing?

  • Surprised?

  • What are you doing?

  • Annoyed.

  • Angry?

  • Yeah, Mariya, what are you doing?

  • Finally, you can extend this idea to create role plays, getting students to write mini dialogs on, then have them annotate this dialogue with emotions and practice the intonation.
