The Mysteries of French


The Whys and Hows 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 has changed a lot over the centuries, while remaining faithful to its Latin origins. 

Everything happens for a reason… Let’s turn on the time machine and understand WHY French almost never looks like it sounds. 

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

  • Taught in French for students of level 5 & up
