French is a tricky language to pronounce and learn. It
s not a phonetic language, so words are not
pronounced as their spelling might suggest which can leave English speakers as
flummoxed as those
foreign language speakers who have to battle through the vagaries of Eng
lish pronunciation. Spare a
thought to people who have to learn the different pronunciations in words like
rough
,
through
,
cough
,
bough
and so on.
