How to Pronounce the French Alphabet

Amelia braves the rain to teach the French alphabetAmelia, who is seven, wanted to make a teaching video to teach English-speaking children the French alphabet. Here is the result. All of the video editing (in other words, choosing all of the crazy video transitions) was done by Amelia herself. In the video, Amelia will speak the English letter and then the equivalent French letter, and leave a little pause for your child or student to repeat the letter after her.

The best way to learn a foreign language is to repeat what you’ve learned aloud – if your students or children are interested in learning the French ABCs, have them learn to pronounce each letter individually, and then repeat the entire alphabet aloud several times. Then, wait a day or two, and repeat the process – the brain learns best by learning in short chunks over a period of time rather than in one single session.

Amelia had a lot of fun making this video and would be happy to make more – please let her know if you have any suggestions for future videos that you would like to see on this site!

  1. Oh my! How adorable is that!! Love it 🙂

    • Thank you very much! I’m glad you like it – we had a lot of fun wandering around the house looking for fun locations to film the video. Please let us know if you have any other fun ideas for videos that we could share online, French language lessons or otherwise… we are looking for suggestions!

    How about doing theme vocabulary like objects in a kitchen, school items/supplies, clothing names, the colors in French, family members vocabulary. I bet you could do some real neat ones!

    • Those are great ideas! I especially like the colors idea – we could find a lot of different things that we could show to demonstrate the different colors, and give their names. Amelia says she likes the idea too. Thanks again!
