This revised and updated language program emphasizes the importance of pronouncing French words and phrases so that the speaker can be understood by the French and French Canadians. It presents exercises in sound discrimination and accurate sound creation--for example instructing in pronunciation of French vowel sounds and nasals such as eu and oei, which many English speakers find especially difficult to master. Words and sounds are put into a variety of conversational contexts for students of French to practice and perfect. This new edition provides the added convenience of audio compact discs to replace the old tape cassettes. The book has been updated to include the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) as a pronunciation guide.

I am using this now, as a library resource, but may well purchase a version, because I suspect I will be spending several hours a day with this for the next few months, at least. Not only does this break down all the various, irritating vowel combinations which usually leave the beginner wondering what sound is intended, it also is VERY good at showing the exceptions to rules. As good as the lessons on vowels and consonants are, the CD/book surpasses itself by providing long passages by native speakers, both as "Practice in Context" selections, as well as selections from French literature. This is going to be the method I make use of to try to have nearly flawless French when I travel to France. It's almost impossible to completely remove a foreign accent from a newly-acquired language, but if i can at least sound as good in French as educated foreign speakers generally do when speaking English, that will be pleasant!!

The material is rather tedious, perhaps boring for most, and wouldn't be suitable for them. However, if you are serious about perfecting your pronunciation, this is for you.

The material concentrates on the many pronunciations for "a", for example. It covers in detail all the pronunciations for the various letters, beyond what most would attempt. In fact most don't notice or care about the subtle differences in how "a" is pronounced in different words. As is true in English, those subtle differences differentiate foreigners from those who try to learn a language well.

I'm giving Pronounce it Perfectly five stars even though I have some reservations about it. The way this book works is to present all of the sounds of French one after the other. Each sound is presented in isolation, based on spelling. It could even be considered to be a catalog of sounds. That makes this book a good reference work. You can look up a spelling in the (very good) index and jump straight to the sound.

I'm not sure, though, how good that approach is for learning the sounds in the first place. For example, I had problems with the various "e" sounds of French. I would have appreciated it if there had been a section that presented these sounds together with each other for the sake of contrast. Considered in isolation, I had trouble relating these similar-sounding sounds (to my anglophone ears) to each other.

I did not find the descriptions of how to produce the sounds (i.e. how to hold the mouth and position the tongue) very useful either. There are diagrams, but the differences in the drawings between them are too subtle to be illuminating. (And at least one of them, the side views for [e] and [ɛ], appears to be wrong.) But thankfully the book uses the International Phonetic Alphabet, and I found that looking up the names of the sounds (e.g. "close-mid front unrounded vowel" for [e]) on Wikipedia to be a better starting point for learning how to produce them.

In summary, this book presents all the crucial information one needs--most importantly it contains the recordings of the sounds--but it doesn't present them as well as it might have. But if the reader is willing to do some work, then this book can be very valuable indeed.

I do not use this reference. I tried but it does not come together as a way of understanding how to pronounce. I went throught the entire program and it helped very little. The french speakers seemed bored and it was all a boring abstract effort that failed to provide any benefit. I really don't think it is worth it to buy. Say it Right in French is a much better book and costs less.

I had to buy this for my French class. It helps your pronounce everything closer to what they actually speak rather then learning on your own. So by listening to this in the car every so often my pronunciation has gotten a lot better and flows more than what it did before. So if you buy it, add it to your collection.

This is a terrible product. It doesn't help you pronounce anything. There is no interaction just a person repeating a bunch of sounds without breaks or any reasonable explanations.

One of the most difficult things about learning French for the average English speaking person is getting the pronunciation correct. There are many nuances of sounds, meter, connecting syllables, etc. This book and accompanying CD organizes the skills you need in priority order and delivers on it's objective. In a brief time, you will develop a good accent even working 10-15 minutes a day. If you combine the study of this volume with a digital recorder and a French Reader that comes with a CD such as Easy French Reader w/CD-ROM: A Three-Part Text for Beginning Students (Easy Reader Series) you will really move quickly toward proper pronunciation. There are also some resources available that organize the phonetic sounds of the language into sound tracks combined with consonants. This is also a good way to practice and come at it a different way. Lastly, you may want to check out Exercises in French Phonics.
Good text,
