We’re back with another minor snippet of what’s to come! Love doing pronunciation podcasts, and remember, all of this will be implemented into a video course, so stay tuned!
The intonation you use lets others know if you are making a statement or asking a question.
Use the falling intonation
Do you want to use wood or stone for the house?
Use rising intonation
You don’t think saving energy is important? (That’s hard to believe!)
Listen to the sentences in the podcast.
Work with a partner. Practice the conversations with correct intonation.
1: A – Do you want me to help you move furniture? It looks heavy.
B – You would help me do that? That would be great.
2. A – I ran 20 kilometers yesterday at the park.
B – You ran 20 kilometers? I could NEVER do that.
3. A – Would you prefer to live in a warm climate or a cold climate?
B – A warm climate. Wouldn’t like cold winters.
