Resources to improve your French pronunciation





unvoicedvoicedapproximantfv   lszʃʒ  ʁ






A syllable has at least one vowel, which means that a word has as many syllables as vowels.
Careful, we're talking about spoken vowels.

Syllables can be complex when they have several consonants or semi-consonants.


oiseau [wazo]

(5 written vowels but 2 spoken vowels, therefore 2 syllables).

Consonant linking

A particularity in French: syllables in French are generally open, that is to say they end with a vowel.
That is why when a word ends with a consonant that is pronounced (for example "il dort" ends in the [ʁ]) sound), this is going to form a syllable with the initial vowel of the following word.


Il dort mal [il-dɔʁ-mal]

Il dort ici [il-dɔ-ʁi-si]

Vowel linking

Going from one vowel to another is a continuous flow, taking no silent pause.


Elle va à Albi ? [ɛl-va-a-al-bi]



The rhythm of French is straightforward because it is called isosyllabism, which means that syllabl
