T he Focus of T his Lesson Is Fr ench Consonant s

The current French alphabet consists of five vowels and twenty-one consonants. Ideally,
each letter represents one speech sound, which, practically, is not always the case in French.
We form words by combining letters into syllables and syllables into words.

Consonant p and t

These are occlusive or blocked consonants. We produce this consonant sound by blocking
the air though the mouth and pharynx with a sudden release.
