If you’re putting in a lot of time, effort and money to learn French, chances are that you also want to be able to SOUND it properly. If your pronunciation is poor, French people will struggle to understand you. Worse, they may understand something else – something potentially very embarrassing!
To sound like a native speaker,
- You need to be able to hear and say every sound of the French language. Some of these sounds will be easy because they already exist in your language. Some will be different (U, R and the nasals are typical examples)
- You must learn how to choose the right intonation for what you want to say and learn how to give the French language its unique rhythm and melody.
Check out my new online course! I believe that it is THE most comprehensive course you can find on the topic.
