Remarks and advice

You should have no problem in learning and memorising the letters of the alphabet, but becareful with the following E and I, G and J.

  • The French "e" sounds like the English "e" of "Earth"
  • The French "i" sounds like the English "e" of "Equal"
  • The "g" is smilar to the English "j"
  • The "j" is similar to the English "g"

For the letter "W" the French say "double V" and not "double U". There is also a strange pronunciation for the letter "Y" which is i grec and means the greek i.
