Intonation is a feature of pronunciation, one of the criteria assessed in the IELTS Speaking Test.
Be aware of and listen out for English stress and rhythm patterns. Practise these patterns by imitating the speech of native speakers.
In the IELTS interview remember to speak with a clear and strong voice. Use a rising tone when asking for clarification and a falling tone when making a statement.
