G is jay with j pronounced as in ‘measure’ and j is jee, x is not ix but eex (as in speaks), q is definitely not coo, but /ky/ and /y/ is a sound that just doesn’t exist in English. But I don’t like English-fying French pronunciation like this.

Not very accurate actually, some of the pronunciations are very wrong :

  • B = Beh

  • C = Ceh

  • D = Deh

  • E = Eu

  • G = Jeh

  • J = Jee

  • K = Ka

  • P = Peh

  • Q = Ku

  • T = Teh

  • U = Hu

  • V = Veh

There is a nice YouTube video explaining how to pronounce it.
