Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 4 – Episode 63 – Pronunciation – The Final Intonation

Welcome back, everyone! Excited to bring you guys today the FINAL INTONATION! This is going to be a great one and all of these will be in video very soon.

Intonation is the rise and fall in the tune or pitch of the voice. In fact, thought groups are sometimes called intonation groups because each thought group has an intonation pattern or contour.

So in this series, you’re going to learn what happens after the pitch jump on the focus word.
