Discourse Intonation seems to be particularly well suited for use in the EFL classroom, much more so than the rather complex traditional models or some recent phonological theories. Yet if English teachers are to be provided with clear guidelines on how to incorporate Discourse Intonation into communicative language teaching, much more empirical research is needed with English students to uncover the specific problems they face. This paper aims to examine the theory of discourse intonation and to discusssome issues related to teaching intonation.
