L’intonation en français
Intonation is often what prevents you to be understood in France. If the ‘music you’re singing’ isn’t French, it’s going to be really hard for a French person to understand what you want to say. So this is not a pronunciation course, but rather a general look at how the sentence is produced.
The Music of French
This course focuses on intonation, but also on other aspects of speaking French: I call this ‘the music of French’, and that includes 3 major items:
- the melody – how the sound of French words goes down at the end of a sentence, for instance
- the rythme – not the speed, mind you – the way syllables and words are bunched up together, for instance
- the structure of French – how a sentence is put together
Take this easy course and follow Anne’s method to make your French speech better and sound more native.
