My students taught me that QUEUE is the most difficult French word to pronounce by far.

That, of course, before they learn that this word makes no exception to the rules of pronunciation: Q is always followed by a silent U (unless it ends the word), EU is pronounce E (like in DE), end final E is silent.

Voilà ! :)


ÉCUREUIL and CUILLER are a close second and third.


Thank you so much your beautiful website. It's a great resource for practice between 1:1 classes.


À bientôt !
