In mastering French, nothing is more important than learning to pronounce the words and phrases so that you can be understood. This CD-and-book program emphasizes speaking, sound discrimination, and standard intonation patterns that are typical of native French speakers, for example pronunciation of French vowel sounds, such as u and eu, and French nasals such as un and en, which many English speakers find especially difficult to pronounce. This program's noteworthy features include:
A guide to French pronunciation expressed in the phonetic symbols of the International Phonetic Association (IPA)
Extensive pronunciation exercises including supplementary help based on poetry, proverbs, familiar sayings, historical quotations and humor
Audio on three convenient compact discs that complements the text
Words and sounds are put into a variety of conversational contexts for students of French to practice and perfect.
