Asking questions - Phonetics

Recognise and differentiate intonations

Say it

Have fun


Questions in the webdoc:

  • On part ailleurs ? 
  • Vous m’accompagnez ?
  • On change d’endroit ?
These questions are structured in the same way as simple phrases, but have rising intonation.


A lot of information can be given through intonation. An affirmative phrase becomes a question if its intonation goes up.
  • On change d’endroit. = an affirmation, a statement.
  • On change d’endroit ? = a question, an invitation, a suggestion.
