Learn French Online: The 1st General Rule Of The French Pronunciation.

Generally we don't pronounce the consonant at the end of the word.

Ex.: buffet – carnet – tricot – rat – rond – bavard – bois – paradis

Attention! There are two Rules where rare cases appear.

The 1st Rule is where the consonant at the end of the word is pronounced like c – l – r – f – s!

Ex.: chic - lac - bec - sac - fer - tennis - canal

The 2nd Rule is where we pronounce the consonant in Singular but we don`t pronounce it in Plural!

Ex.: un os ... des os - un boeuf ... des boeufs - un oeuf ... des oeufs
