I’m about to teach you how to Pronounce French Consistently & Confidently, step by step.
We’ll cover every possible sound: vowels, consonants, nasals, di/trigraphs, liaisons, apostrophes, via 150 common words & phrases.
We’ll go through 7 typical pronunciation mistakes so you don’t have to make them!
Big. Exciting. News: I have been working on my second French online course called PERFECT PRONUNCIATION since the beginning of this year and IT’S FINALLY READY! Another course packed with video & audio files along with written material, to make it as fun, easy, and user friendly as possible for you!
We’re not just launching a new product, we’re also launching a new membership format for you to access these French online courses from $10 / month. See more details about the membership at the bottom of this page
In the PERFECT PRONUNCIATION course you will find 11 videos + 150 audio files to help & accompany you every step of the way throughout the course. In some parts of the videos, my face will appear close up and profile so you can easily see how I make these sounds with my mouth. The 150 audio files are composed of the 100 most popular French words and the 50 most common French phrases. They are recordings of my voice, speaking slowly enough so you can easily grasp every syllable.
NB: if you are the proud owner of my previous French online course 600 WORDS, don’t worry, this is not a repeat as we are now exploring 1 letter words and up, whereas in 600 WORDS we began at 4 letter words and up.
How can you confidently express yourself in French?
How can you easily speak French with a PERFECT PRONUNCIATION?
That’s actually quite easy! We simply need to be thorough. Together we’ll cover every possible sound: vowels, consonants, nasals, digraphs, trigraphs, liaisons, apostrophes, consonants at the end of words, you name it. We’ll even go through 6 typical pronunciation mistakes I always hear as a French teacher, so you don’t have to make them!
Combine knowledge with confidence…
For you to be able to have a pleasant and efficient conversation with a French person, one thing is key… can you guess what it is? Confidence! How well do you think you will communicate in French if you don’t feel confident about your accent? If you are scared that people won’t understand you? Or even worse if you think someone might make fun of you? Without a minimum of confidence there is no room for communication. Yet if you feel confident, you can afford to make a few mistakes here and there because people will still understand you. What prevents a conversation from happening isn’t just a lack of knowledge, it’s also a lack of confidence. You need to have both to make it work, not to mention, to make it fun!
Put on your French Face!
Together we’ll retrain your mouth muscles. It sounds hard, it’s really not. Just like anything else new you decide to learn, it takes practice and repetition. If you know what to do with your lips, your tongue, your teeth, and your cheeks, which I will tell you of course, then magically it becomes a lot easier. Making the right shape with your mouth will help you tremendously. Don’t be shy, go for it, put on your French face!
I will teach you…
1- How to pronounce every letter of the alphabet
We’ll go through the entire alphabet and every possible sound with each of the 26 letters with words to give you context, every time. 26 letters does not mean 26 sounds as one letter can have different sounds. This means there will be more than 26 sounds. I will break it all down for you so you encounter every possible sound French vowels and consonants can make.
2- How to pronounce every digraph & trigraph
We’ll play with digraphs and trigraphs. No these are not swear words, they might sound intimidating but they’re very easy. A digraph represents a combination of 2 letters making 1 sound. For instance when you say chocolat, the first 2 letters c h make 1 sound sh, chocolat. 2 letters, 1 sound. A trigraph represents a combination of 3 letters making 1 sound. For instance, when you want to say I’m hungry, you say j’ai faim, the last 3 letters a i m make 1 sound in, faim. This section also covers nasal sounds of course.
3- How to make every French sentence flow
We’ll explain how to make French flow in your mouth via liaisons, apostrophes, and whether or not to pronounce consonants at the end of words.
4- How to pronounce the 100 most popular French words
We’ll learn how to pronounce and how to use the 100 most commonly used words in the French language. This is not a repeat of my 600 words course as here we begin with 1 letter words, which means we cover words such as du, au, à, en, le, de, etc. all these crucial little words you need to build sentences and that are very often mispronounced or misused, which does not help communication.
5- How to pronounce the 50 most popular French phrases
We’ll discover 50 key sentences that you are bound to hear and use countless times on your next visit to France.
6- How to avoid the pronunciation mistakes everyone makes
I’ll use my years of teaching experience and share with you the most typical pronunciation mistakes that all my students have made over and over. We’ll explore the ones that keep coming back so that you can simply avoid them once and for all!
