Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 3 – Episode 39 – Pronunciation – Intonation in Conditional Sentences

First and foremost, I now have the first of five phases (pronunciation course) available on UDEMY. If you’re adamant with improving your enunciation in the work space, traveling, in the classroom, community, online with friends, etc….hit the link down below.

UDEMY Pronunciation Course

Welcome back to another episode, everyone! Today we’re going to get a listen sophisticated on this beautiful eve before Christmas. I’m going to up-the-ante and teach you something difficult. This will be a relatively short podcast, but understand how intonations in conditional sentences work.

When you begin a conditional sentence with an if clause, each clause has its own intonation pattern. The intonation falls at the end of each clause.

If there’s an underwater earthquake, you’ll probably have a tsunami.

When the main clause begins a conditional sentence, the sentence has a single intonation pattern. The intonation falls at the end of the sentence.

You’ll probably have a tsunami if there’s an underwater earthquake.

Tactic Practice

  1. I would definitely want to see Kilauea Volcano if I visited Hawaii.
  2. You’ll be familiar with earthquake safety if you live in a country like Japan.
  3. If you ever feel an earthquake, you’ll also probably feel smaller aftershocks later.
  4. If I had time to take another class, I’d study geology.
