You can improve your French pronunciation in 5 days
You speak French, but people do not understand you. You speak French, but you are often asked to repeat what you have just said. You speak French, but the person you are speaking you understands something other than what you have said.
You know enough French grammar. Your vocabulary does not pose major problems, and your listening comprehension either. Your pronunciation, however, leaves a lot to be desired. You have tried everything to improve it, but in vain, or with less than satisfactory results.
Five days at DialoguE can change your life.
The DialoguE Approach is pragmatic. It is the fruit of DialoguE’s vast experience with many learners of all nationalities and horizons who have faced the same problems as you in learning French.
In five days at DialoguE, you will discover the keys that you have been missing to achieve your goals. You will have the solutions to the pronunciation problems that you have been trying to solve for a long time. And, like many of our clients, you will be asking yourself why you did not call on DialoguE sooner.
DialoguE has developed, for the French language, an extremely effective pronunciation-improvement method.
A great number of university professors and international businesspeople come to Dialogue to improve their pronunciation in record time.
Several professors from Harvard University who gave presentations at the Sorbonne in Paris directly after DialoguE training were complimented by the French themselves on their unusually fine pronunciation skills.
I had a fairly advanced level of French before my visit to DialoguE but I felt that my pronunciation was holding me back.
After my week at DialoguE I am happy to report that my pronunciation has greatly improved.
I am confident that I will continue to make progress after my stay, thanks to the CD containing key phrases from my lessons and the helpful advice I received.
American student Elliot Essman comments:
I had been studying French for years before I spent my first week at Dialogue, and my pronunciation was not bad. Over a period of four years I had taken private lessons once a week with a French woman in my neighborhood in New York City. Once, when she was trying to correct my pronunciation, I imitated a difficult French nasal vowel sound precisely. She was astonished. "You can say it!" she said. I answered, "Of course. The problem is that I almost never can hear it. The fact is, as determined as I was to learn "real" French, my English trained ears could simply not distinguish an entire range of French vowel sounds that are critical if you want to speak French. My mouth, lips and tongue were willing to move in very un-English directions, but my ears lagged far behind.
Jean-Luc Godard's method works rapidly to cure that fundamental problem for English-speaking students of French. We took words apart, played games with their pieces, and trained my ear (actually both my ears) with minute precision to hear and distinguish the vowel sounds and combinations. Then we applied the knowledge by means of another type of intensive training: using videos of people speaking rapid French to train my ear to distinguish entire words that English speakers often fail to hear because they are three-quarters vowel, elided together, or spoken rapidly.
When I returned to my local French conversation group back in the US, one of the French women in the group noticed that my pronunciation had improved dramatically -- all in the space of a week. The beauty of the ear training is that it lifts you out of a fog; you start to view the French language as a series of natural French sounds instead of a series of strange "foreign" sounds. This kind of progress is permanent.
