Pronunciation: the final "e" that is silent

A1 Breakthrough
Share
We do not pronounce the “e” at the end of words. The last sound pronounced is the one preceding the final letter “e”. 

Example: 
Audio file
J’étudie à l’école hôtelière.

We only pronounce the “e” in one syllable words.

Examples:
Audio file
je
Audio file
je m'appelle Alexandre
Audio file
de
Audio file
avant de venir en Suisse
Audio file
le
Audio file
dans le milieu international
