Intonation of the speakers

When you listen to the phrases, they sound like a statement in lieu of a question.

Hi Shabbychic45Michele,

Thanks for pointing this out, I have changed the audio on some of the sentences which you will agree are now better.

Bonne Continuation!

On some, I agree there is little intonation change, but not on all. However, as all these questions start with a question word, there is no need for the speaker to rely on intonation to make sure they are understood as questions.

That's very true indeed.
