Limber up your tongue and lips! And send me a comment if there are any sounds you cannot pronounce.

French oral gymnastics: how do you pronounce ‘représenter’?

Instructions:

Limber up your tongue and lips! And send me a comment if there are any sounds you cannot pronounce.

An English speaker who sees the word ‘représente‘ (highlighted below) is natually going to pronounce it like the English word ‘represent.’ Listen-and-repeat helps you correct these types of pronunciation mistakes.

French oral gymnastics: ce qui est intéressant…

Instructions:

I wanted you to get the chance to say ce qui est… over and over. (Listening and repeating helps you build your list of go-to words that you can ‘come up with’ quickly when you are speaking French!)

French oral gymnastics: different types of R sounds

Instructions:

Limber up your tongue and lips! And send me a comment if there are any sounds you cannot pronounce.

First, you may just want to listen to see if you agree that there is more than one French R. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that you need to learn which one to place where, because that is not necessary. Just practice speaking with your tongue forward and you’ll find that you naturally make the same sound that the French do.
