Overcoming Challenges in Pronunciations

Examples of such words are’bon appetit’, ‘bon voyage’ and ‘avant-garde’.
The best way to learn and study proper French pronunciation when taking up French courses in Kolkata is to rely on audio. Other than that communicating with a native French speaker also works. Moreover, from the native speakers, you will get to hear some sounds in French that do not exist in English.
When you are taking up a course from a French training institute, always pay attention to the pronunciation that is being taught by your trainers.When you are having problems ask your tutor then and there or else you will always be making wrong pronunciations of words. You can also take the step of recording yourself and practice with it.
When you are learning the language you must have an open mind because learning foreign languages requires you to have a flexible mindset. Just listen to French and try to read any text from books and you will improve eventually.
