My advice :

Now I'm going to give you some tips for dealing with words that have a difficult pronunciation in French.

First, when you are faced with a word whose pronunciation you don't know. I invite you to look at its pronunciation on the Internet. You can type on Google : *word* + prononciation

You can also do this same search on YouTube.

To master the pronunciation of certain difficult words, there is no secret: you have to practice.

I invite you to practice these or other words in this way:

  1. Go to a site like ReadSpeaker.
  2. Choose a French-speaking voice
  3. Write down the word to be pronounced + the word in an example
  4. On your computer or phone, record the audio.
  5. Keep it in your phone and every day listen to this recording and repeat the words at the same time.
  6. Practice them until they are no longer a problem for you

As you can see, some words, especially in French, are not pronounced the way they are read. Use the pronunciation guidelines I have given you or that you can find on the Internet.

Are there any other words that are difficult for you to pronounce in French? Tell me in the comments and I'll prepare a new lesson with these words.
