There are some good Youtube video which just teach pronunciation. For example - frenchsounds But Pimsleur is also good for senetnces and learning French.

To help with French pronunciation you need to engross yourself in the language which in the age of the internet is not too difficult a task, I would start by watching some French movies or series.

If you are just starting out with French there is a great series that you can find on Youtube called Extra French. They speak slowly and use basic vocabulary to help learners of the language and you can get a better idea as to the sound of French.

Goodluck!

I often watch my favourite shows but french dubbed, also you can look at foreign films/ shows through netflix categories. I would say the only way to improve is listening to people who actually speak it.

Hey aliabbas, what I found helpful is to keep repeating out loud the sentences given in the lession. Try to repeat slowly and several times in a row. Try your best to imitate the exact sounds (there is a slower version expecially after you click few times). Another important part of pronounciation is actually your ability to identify musical pitch. Basically I find that musical training (e.g. singing and or your ability to follow the melody closely) really helps with pronounciation. So maybe look into taking singing classes and learn some French songs! Good lulck:)

Try the FluentForever Channel on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI2Pso1dDjM You need to learn how to place your tongue and lips in order to pronounce it correctly. The other thing is the vowels and the accents - they're "flat", there are no accents in french, or very few (that's why we French are terrible at pronounciating English and German)
