Welcome back to another episode, everyone! Today we're going to get a listen sophisticated on this beautiful eve before Christmas. I'm going to up-the-ante and teach you something difficult. This will be a relatively short podcast, but understand how intonations in conditional sentences work. 

When you begin a conditional sentence with an if clause, each clause has its own intonation pattern. The intonation falls at the end of each clause.

If there's an underwater earthquake, you'll probably have a tsunami.

When the main clause begins a conditional sentence, the sentence has a single intonation pattern. The intonation falls at the end of the sentence.
