This is the fourth and final list of the most tricky French words to pronounce.
We asked our Facebook followers what they think is the French word that trips them up every time, and we were able to round up a list of 120 words which were broken down into a series of four articles.
So today, let’s look at the remaining 30 words in the list. Make sure to practice with the audio I recorded! 🙂
