Are they any French pronunciation guides you'd recommend ?

I'm just starting French and the pronunciation is a bit tricky. I've found other websites that claim to help with pronunciation but are too technical. So I don't know what to do? Should I just continue imitating tts French and native speakers until it clicks and I can recognize sounds and vowel combinations and liaisons.......help plz?

    Listen to native French speakers anywhere you can - there are plenty of youtube sites for learners. The more different voices you get used to, the more you will understand speakers in general

    Try Cindy's channel which you can find here; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCohJ129sdAX08pkeCyQL9Jw

    She's a native French speaker who lives in the UK and has learnt English as a second language.

    She has several videos addressing pronouncing French words and letters for Native English speakers!

    Also, she's really not so technical, she tries to make it easy.

    At this point, just listen to the sentences. Listen to each one two or three times. Then try and speak along with it.
