EPISODE 2:

In this episode, we delve into the complexities of the French pronoun "je", an essential word for expressing personal thoughts, feelings, and actions in French.

Discover the secrets behind the subtle pronunciation shifts, like how "Je ne sais pas" becomes "Chai pas" phonetically, or "Je suis ici" is often pronounced as "Chui ici". We also explore how "je" changes when it precedes voiceless consonants such as s, p, t, f, k, and voiced consonants like b, d, g, j, l, m, n, r, v, z.

I share various examples of "je" to help you understand and master the nuances of the French language. For instance, "Je t’attend" might be pronounced as "chtaten", "Je pense a toi" as "chpense a toi", and "Je vais bien" as "J'vais bien".

Whether you're a beginner or an advanced French learner, this episode offers valuable insights and practical tips to improve your pronunciation and comprehension, all while making learning fun and enjoyable.
