FRENCH LESSON – HOW TO PRONOUNCE FRENCH VOWELS

Vowels in French can have accent marks; except for “e”, this doesn’t usually change the sound:

a, à, â 
like “a” in “father”
e
like “a” in “about”
é
like “ay” in “say”
ê
like “e” in “set”
è
like “e” in “set”
i, î 
like “ee” in “feed”
o, o, ô, au, eau 
like “oa” in “boat” or “aw” in “law”

ou 

like “oo” in “food”, but a pure vowel
u, ù
more or less like “oo” in “food”, but the tongue is like “ee” in “feed”; written uu in transcriptions
y
like “ee” in “feed”
