    It's a good idea at all levels to help students to get a basic grasp of how to make questions sound polite with intonation. You don't have to spend ages on it, but just every time you teach some question forms, show them how to make their voices express politeness.

    It's an area that really makes a difference as soon as they start to use the language with native speakers or with other non-native speakers.
