From one chapter to the next, from one sound to the next we will construct methodically the two Maps of your French Mouth in Colors©.

These two maps will help you to distinguish the French sounds that are very closed and similar to each other.

The first map is the map of the French vowel sounds and the second map is the map of the French consonant sounds.

The Tongue Twisters in Colors©

At the end of the study of each sound, 3 Tongue Twisters in Colors© will be proposed to you as an exercise.

Students' reviews of the French pronunciation course

The drawings in colors helped me so much!

5.0 rating

Thank you for the time you spent putting this course together. I love it. I still taking it at the moment and I have already learned so much. French language is actually a very delicate language. Very soft. The sounds are very close to each other but actually very distinct from one another. I understand that now. Thank you.

I discovered my French mouth

5.0 rating

Thank you for this course. I was at home saying sounds alone in the living room in front of my computer. That was a bizarre experience at the beginning, but after few days I could only enjoy coming back to this personal experience. I was then training almost silently and for myself when walking during the daytime in the street, trying to find the sounds in my mouth. Thank you for the passion you’ve put in this course, I received it and it moved me in my personal life. I will definitely continue with French. Really a great course.
