Pronunciation(French)

Hey guys, So I am okay with understanding, writing, and reading french. However, since Duo doesn't do much with pronunciation, I am in a little trouble with that. I pronounce it like Spanish or Italian, which I know is wrong. :/ Does anybody know any websites that are known for French pronunciation or would help more that Duo(no offense). If so, then please tell me in this forum or on my stream. Please either send the link or tell me the website name. KEEP IN MIND- it has to be a website since I cannot install anything on my phone. It also has to be free.

<pre> Thanks, Merci. Fluffypeeka </pre>

P.S- To all those people who also need help with pronunciation, you can check the comments for websites, too.

Consider speaking with real people on HelloTalk (you can call there) or italki.com (also free language exchange, not only paid informal and formal tutoring).

I find Lingvist (website) kind of helpful. It's aimed at increasing vocabulary, but if you listen and repeat every sentence it can help.

Here is a useful link: http://www.laits.utexas.edu/fi/html/pho/00.html

It's a link to the pronunciation lessons of an online French textbook (Fran├žais interactif.) Use the drop down menu in the upper right hand corner of the box to take you to the pronunciation sections of each chapter (the menu at the bottom takes you to the chapters as a whole.) I think you will find these helpful.

I recommend spending a little time watching French movies. That will help give you the cadence and pronunciation of French. Then find a friend who speaks it fluently to check your pronunciation. You can also try high schools or colleges for teachers who can give you a quick tutorial.

Estoy de acuerdo. The pronunciation is difficult to get use to. I would recommend just listening to youtube and podcasts in french and repeat what you hear. I am just starting french too and coming from learning spanish. I wanna keep pronouncing each letter of the word. It differs a lot in that way. Youtube can be a good tool because it has educational videos that can give you some tips on pronunciation.

I listen to lots of French podcasts. Basic beginners is Coffee Break French and then move up to Francaise Authentique and then radio shows like Grand Reportage. I alse use Yabla and LingQ as you have the transcript as well as the voice but these are subscriptions. If you have access to the internet I can also suggest TedX talks in French and then turn on subtitles - plus you get to learn some interesting topics.
