Course Overview

Set yourself up for success on your French language learning quest by acquiring the required foundation to build upon.

The Avecmavoix programme is an innovative 30 day crash course to learn the pronunciation of all the syllables you'll ever need, to read every word you'll ever encounter in French.

Prioritise learning all the French sounds right from the start to ensure the development of proper pronunciation and to be better understood by French speakers across the globe.

The Avecmavoix approach will accelerate your acquisition of the French language as you develop your listening, reading, writing and speaking skills.

Course Description

Avoid the many challenges faced by students who missed out on learning basic pronunciation rules which are acquired in Francophone educational systems at kindergarten or preschool level.

Articulate near-native French pronunciation, achieve general fluency, oral accuracy, and a sound understanding of spoken French, by learning fundamental French pronunciation rules from the beginning, in the same way as Francophone natives do.

This is achieved by integrating phonological awareness of the sounds in French words and how they relate to French orthography. Each class is dedicated to a group of sounds with practical exercises in oral practice, sound discrimination and phonetic transcription.

In a nutshell, this intensive course is designed to stimulate and structure your oral language, develop understanding of messages and texts heard, develop and train your phonological awareness and guide the learning of graphic gestures and writing.
