Master French Phonetics once and for all!
While French phonetics can be challenging, learning the rules is the secret. Constance explains how to read the International Phonetic Alphabet (I.P.A.) and explains French spelling, while demonstrating the positions of the mouth that make up the consonant and vowel sounds of modern French. Plenty of practice and fun tongue-twisters will help you speak like a native! This class is NOT designed for complete beginners but recommended after a 101 or 102 course or a “Phonetics & Pronunciation 1” class.
Mardi 18 :00-19 :30
