Male vs female accent in French
Can anyone tell me why the male voice always puts an 'eh' sound at the end of words that end with e? The female voice doesn't. The male voice almost sounds like he's a Spanish speaker speaking French (to my ear). What is that?
I think that Luscinda is using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) to illustrate her meaning but I don't recognise /grɑs/. I thought they were /græs/ vs /grɑːs/. http://learnersdictionary.com/definition/grass
Correct me if I am wrong Luscinda :)
I'm not complaining, oftentimes the male voice is easier to understand than the female voice. Also, if you were to listen to some traditional French songs you will notice that they often accentuate the e at the end of words as well. One thing I do wish Duolingo would allow us to do though, is to be able to switch between the male and female voice, especially during an exercise.
