Intonation is a feature of pronunciation, one of the criteria assessed in the IELTS Speaking Test.

Study Tips:
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.
