Do you wish you could speak French with a Parisian accent and understand it when
spoken by the natives? This workshop is for you! Learn the sounds of French and
practice pronouncing them correctly, so as to be understood. Practice hearing the small
differences between sounds which you have to be able to distinguish in order not to
mistake one word for another. Become aware of how words are strung together and
what sounds are dropped in informal speech. All this, plus practicing the typical
intonation (melody) and rhythm patterns of French and learning how spelling correlates
with pronunciation, and you'll be well on your way toward sounding like a native!
No prior knowledge of French necessary. Materials fee: $30 at first class - includes textbook and two one-hour pronunciation CDs.
