Voice and emphasis

– pause in the right place, speak slowly, use a few expressions and phrases to add extra emphasis to your presentation.
– intonation:
the yes/no questions have a rising intonation. Ex: are you free for diner?
the Wh (why, what, where, when, who …) question have a falling intonation. Ex: what are you doing later?
Basically, in English the intonation goes down at the end of the idea. (rising intonation at the beginning of the phrase and falling intonation at the end of the phrase).
– stress
