In mastering French, nothing is more important than learning to pronounce the words and phrases so that you can be understood. This online-and-book program emphasizes speaking, sound discrimination, and standard intonation patterns that are typical of native French speakers, for example pronunciation of French vowel sounds, such as u and eu, and French nasals such as un and en, which many English speakers find especially difficult to pronounce. This program's noteworthy features include:

  • A guide to French pronunciation expressed in the phonetic symbols of the International Phonetic Association (IPA)
  • Extensive pronunciation exercises including supplementary help based on poetry, proverbs, familiar sayings, historical quotations and humor
  • Online audio

Words and sounds are put into a variety of conversational contexts for students of French to practice and perfect.
