How to improve?


The most common problem faced by learners of French, the correct pronunciation of the famous French [R]. By the way, Burr [R] sounds in the first place, in the speech of Parisians. In many other regions of France, this sound is articulated almost the same as in Russian, but the vibration sounds a bit less. Therefore, even if you repeat the characteristic Burr [R] unable to worry about it not worth it: half the population of France utters this sound.

However, wishing to show off a pure Parisian accent can use some tricks to formulation of the beautiful pronunciation of this sound.

In articulation of the French [R] is the uvula located in the interior of the larynx. He begins to vibrate, for example when you rinse a throat. If empty mouth to do the same, and that when gargling, it will sound close to [R], only more dull. Workout and exercises will add to him the necessary sonority.

Another way – instead of the French [R] to pronounce the fricative [G] as in the Ukrainian language.

Of course, [R] is not the only sound that distinguishes French from the Russian. So, in order to speak French with a Russian accent, he can stretch the lips into a wide smile – then his speech will appear characteristic for the Russian language sonority. Russian-speaking does a man need to drown out the spoken sounds to make them more "stringy". This pronunciation is, to talk, putting her hands on her cheeks and gently pushing down, sliding the skin to the center of the face to the mouth "duck". It is necessary to achieve a similar sound, but of course without hands.
