The paper investigates EFL prosody teaching and learning obstacles in monolingual societies alongside the main limitations for efficient deployment of specific prosody training tools based on audiovisual feedback. Prosody teaching and learning environment StudyIntonation containing the mobile application (MA) and the courseware development kit (CDK) is examined from teacher perspective. In StudyIntonation approach teachers are supposed to be co-authors of learning content and can contribute to new courses development. StudyIntonation approach puts together the advances of pitch visualization technology with Android mobile application development to offer a handy open-source prosody teaching, learning and research platform. It is shown, that new courses may be launched within a very short period provided native designed or spontaneous speech records are available.
