French Pronunciation Chart To Help Improve Speaking Confidence

French pronunciation is a tricky little (big) thing and knowing how to pronounce French sounds and letter combinations can be quite daunting for beginner French learners, as well as improvers.

I have found that not knowing how to pronounce sounds is one of the main issues that hinders my students’ confidence. I focus on phonics from the first lessons, but have been on the look out for a handy guide that I can give to them to refer to. I couldn’t find anything specific that was user-friendly enough, hence the creation of this ‘French Pronunciation Tricky Sounds Guide Chart’.

French pronunciation guide chart - how to pronounce French letter combinations and letters (3)You can download the final copy below! It’s absolutely FREE, as with all the other resources on my website which have had over 100,000 downloads in total.

The only things that I request are:

1️⃣ you share it with colleagues to reduce prep time and support them and students to help develop their confidence

2️⃣ please don’t take my website off of the final copy – it’s taken hours of work.

3️⃣ PLEASE take a look at and SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL HERE (if you think it’s of use!)

A big thanks!

Thanks to the teachers on the Secondary MFL Facebook group for giving me your suggestions for improvements. Although I haven’t adapted the resource based on every single bit of feedback – you can’t please everyone!  I have adapted the resource as much as I could.

If you can afford it and this French pronunciation guide has saved you some time, I’d be grateful for any donations. Absolutely not a requirement but you could treat me to a coffee if you’d like.
