Soundtrack to the French Idioms From A to Z

Of all people I know that the spelling of a word doesn’t always match the way native-speakers pronounce that word.

When it comes to popular expressions the challenge can be greater.

This is why I have recorded the twenty-six French idioms from A to Z.

You can listen to them by clicking on the A to Z New Category that I added to my blog.

Let me know if you enjoy the idea.

Promise: No Oral Test on Monday!



  1. Lovely idea 🙂

    Thanks for your sharing…

  3. That’s a great idea Evelyne! As I read these posts, I was always trying to say them in my head. Now I can hear how they actually sound 🙂

  4. Man, I hated those oral language tests. 🙂 –Curt

  5. Congratulations Evelyne – I think it is an awesome idea. I tried to find the category on the blog, but not seeing it.

  6. The idea came from you, Mary! So thanks again. You can click on A to Z, which is next to On Public Radio, right under Home/ About Me/ My Writing/ Inspiration.
    Hope it helps. Let me know how your French is improving!

  7. Great idea Evelyne, now we get to hear them as they should be said 🙂

    • Thank you, Andrea. Although I’ve often wished to get rid of my French accent, I admit that it’s also good that I can still speak French without an accent!

  8. Behind the Story says:

    That’s a great idea, Evelyne. I love hearing your voice. French is such a beautiful sounding language.

    • And I love hearing American people! 😊 I think that every language, which isn’t ours sounds exotic and more beautiful. But it is true that when I return to France I find the French language soft and musical to my ears. Thank you, Nicki, for your support to this series and my blog.

  9. I’ve really enjoyed listening to these! Thanks for making them 🙂

  10. Now that’s a very cool idea, Evelyne. Huge hugs. 🙂

  11. Le français est une des langues les plus belles dans le monde. C’est ça pourquoi que je blogue aussi en français. Belle journée.

  12. I’ve been meaning to comment on this for a while, but it got buried in my inbox. I think it’s a great idea!!
