Phonetic tutorial : U and OU

First: the warm up.

This video is a phonetical warm up. You can decide to skip it, but you can also decide to maximise your chances to produce new sounds by following this tutorial before starting with the next video. You have 76 muscles to help you produce sounds. To speak French you will have to use different muscles, and use some of them in unusual ways, so if you don't want to speak French with your usual language accent, this little streching is really useful.

Then: U and OU

This video introduces you to the pronunciation of U and OU. As U is absent from many languages, it's likely you will tend to pronunce it as another sound from your phonetical repertoire (usually your mother tongue). With the consonant R, U is the letter that indicates to Frenchies you don't master French language yet. Enjoy the video and train !
