French Sounds is composed of several phonetic games (based on our patented process) that make it easy to learn the basic sound combinations (phonemic building blocks) of the French language in a fun, interactive way that will fine-tune comprehension skills.
• concentration (sound matching)
• phonemic flash cards
• sound blending
• word building
All games feature audio references so the player knows that he is pronouncing the phonemes correctly.
The Sound Ruler includes all sound combinations, and serves as a guide and reference for the player.

It helps me a lot Jen. P.S. you are the best tutor ever!!!!
Incorrect pronunciation for soft 'g' and 'c'
I bought this app for my son, so he could practice the difference between the hard 'g' and 'c' sound when followed by the vowel 'a', 'o', and 'u' and the soft 'g' and 'c' sound when followed by 'e' and 'i'. However, this app used a hard 'g' sound regardless of the vowel that followed. For a simple pronunciation app that costs $10, this is unacceptable. I really hope I can get a refund.
Less than impressed
I also am not overly impressed with this app. For more than $10, more like 13, in fact, I expected a lot more! I, too, am not impressed with some of the pronunciations. For example, the ending/syllable -ix is pronounced like a French "i" and when combined with the letter "d" forming the word dix, it is pronounced as though the x is silent. Perhaps it was just a poor letter choice for the creator to combine the ix with d. I realize that sometimes the x is silent in -ix, as in the name Chamonix, but in dix and six, it is not.
