    Red face Helping students to understand intonation

    Part of my current task on my course is to suggest ways to help students to understand intonation. I am drowning in books and just need some simple tips. Can anyone help please?

    Intonation can change the meaning of what we are saying. For example:

    I'll walk to the station with you. (No-one else will!)
    I'll walk to the station with you. (I'll walk but I'm not going to jog!)
    I'll walk to the station with you. (but you'll have to come back by yourself)
    I'll walk to the station with you. (only as far as the station)
    I'll walk to the station with you. (we'll walk together)
    I'll walk to the station with you. (I don't want to walk with anyone else)

    Hope this helps
