You will focus on what differentiates nasal vowels from other vowels, the different ways of pronouncing the “r” and the “gn”, and how rhythm in French is linked to sentence structure rather than word choice, as it is in English. Each class focuses on the individual production of sounds as well as the basic principles of French intonation.
