This revised and updated language program emphasizes the importance of pronouncing French words and phrases so that the speaker can be understood by the French and French Canadians. It presents exercises in sound discrimination and accurate sound creation--for example instructing in pronunciation of French vowel sounds and nasals such as eu and oei, which many English speakers find especially difficult to master. Words and sounds are put into a variety of conversational contexts for students of French to practice and perfect. This new edition provides the added convenience of audio compact discs to replace the old tape cassettes. The book has been updated to include the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) as a pronunciation guide.
