How can I improve my French pronunciation?
Hi, I am just trying to learn french. I am understanding most of it. But I need some tips regarding how can I improve my french pronunciation. Please share your experience and suggest me some tips by which I can also improve my French pronunciation. Help!
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.
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:)

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)
