Speaking and Singing French is an engaging introduction to standard French pronunciation for students and singers studying French diction. This learning resource contains two components, a textbook and a multimedia Internet portion, that provide instruction in both formal pronunciation and conversational French. The multimedia component is a companion to the textbook. Divided into a series of lessons, the book teaches pronunciation by drawing attention to the division of words, the rhythm, and intonation. The book also includes written exercises, dialogues for practicing conversation, as well as song texts and translations.
