Description

In this video, I explain why French people sound French when speaking English. I break down the accent features with the help of current French president Emmanuel Macron!

(10 points to anyone who realised that the 2nd /p/ in "passport" is fairly unaspirated in English)

Thanks to those viewers who have pointed out that Emmanuel Macron has "un cheveu sur la langue" in French. However, this really doesn't matter. I teach many French students who hypercorrect and pronounce /s/ as /θ/ (and /z/ as /ð/) in English, and who don't have "un cheveu sur la langue". This video is simply a demonstration of potential pronunciation issues French people may have in English. Hypercorrection is a common issue and Macron illustrates this.
