French Pronunciation Made Easy

French language pronunciation is a mixed blessing from the native English speaker's point of view. Given the similarity of the two languages, there are a number of similar sounds native in each language, and compared to say, Mandarin Chinese, the two tongues are practically intertwined.

On the other hand, French features a number of sounds and accompanying spellings that don't have an English equivalent, and learning these can be rather tricky for learners. There are a number of easy ways you can improve your understanding of French pronunciation though – below we've compiled the most common pronunciation issues learners have, and how you can pronounce them the right way.
