Bonjour et bienvenue!
The French alphabet is quite similar to the English alphabet with only some differences in pronunciations. Also there are certain combinations of vowels which are pronounced in a certain way. A list of these have been mentioned below.
G-jay (like the s in treasure)
A- a as in farm
E- silent at the end
I and y- ee (ई)
O- as in oh or not
U- as in you
Ei- uh ee (अइ)
Oi- waa (उआ)
Ui- wee (उइ)
Au and eau- oh (ओ)
Eu and œu- uh
J- as in measure
*Tip of the day-
These are very important for the correct pronounciation of words and remember even a single letter or syllable mispelled or mispronounced will make a whole lot of difference! Be careful!
Eg-poison-poison and poisson-fish
