What you'll learn in this french class:

The Why’s and How’s of French Spelling 

So… let’s recap. AU and EAU sounds like “oh”, OU is “ooh, AI and EI do “eh” and OI makes… “wah”?!!

The relationship between spelling and pronunciation in French, let’s face it, stands somewhere between confusing and frustrating, with all those vowel combinations and silent letters! But why is it like that?

Our romance language really doesn’t want to forget “Mommy dearest”, Latin, but has changed a lot over the centuries.

Nothing comes from nothing… Let’s turn on the time machine and understand WHY it almost never looks like it sounds.

This workshop is great as a follow up to our Phonetics class but also works on its own!
