Intonation, English example?

Intonation, English example?

For case 1, intonation: if "just as in English", shouldn't the English example be "You are arriving soon?" ? "Are you arriving soon?" is more like an inversion and would not make make a grammatical declarative sentence as "Are you arriving soon." The standard declarative would be "You are arriving soon.", which can then use intonation (or a question mark) to become a question.
