Challenging sounds.

Sounds to Differentiate:
Finally, a whole book devoted to nasals and semi-consonants! The range of activities offered makes it possible to correct the addition of an [n] or [m] sound after nasal vowels and to deal with linking with [n]. Incorrect pronunciation of nasals is effectively corrected through the syllabication technique (un bi/lan, un in/té/rêt) and switching from the vowel to the corresponding nasal (bas, banc). The treatment of semi-consonants is based on their resemblance to the corresponding English sounds and thereby avoids the interference caused by spelling. No more problems with feuille, sommeil, mouillé, oeil!

This third book also meets the need to acquire the rhythm and intonation of French. It applies the principles used in the first two books and adds emphatic stress. Songs, nursery rhymes and literary texts add to the material and illustrate the points under discussion.
