The French phrases section of the web site has had a slight update with French pronunciations added to the following pages:

  • Getting around town in French: now includes pronunciations of basic building names in French, such as "cathedral", "museum", "bar" etc., as well as how to pronounce basic French phrases for getting round town such as those used when asking for directions.
  • Christmas in French now includes pronunciations so that you are correctly pronouncing your favourite French Christmas phrases.

If you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, then you may be interested to know that most of the above vocabulary features in the French Vocab Games and Utter French! apps available from the French Linguistics site. These apps feature studio recordings of a native French speaker pronouncing over 1,200 items of French vocabulary, thus giving you correct French pronunciation at your finger tips.
