At bottom of this email: video link to help with skuh (parce que) from the last newsletter.
Today, some pronunciation work and another baby-step on our way to sounding French: I want you to learn to use the word effectivement.
How to do it: repeat the words right after the speaker. I call this echoing. You are listening to and repeating every word, but with a 2-second delay. (You may have to turn up the volume in order to hear the recording at the same time you speak.)
Please repeat after the speaker 5, 10, or 15 times. While you repeat, think also about how closely you are matching the sounds made by the speaker.
Would it have been cool to also have the original to compare with the ‘slow-echoing’ version above?
