Episode 39 – Listen if you hesitate about the pronunciation of “plus”

Welcome to the thirty-ninth episode of the French Blabla podcast where we will cover tips to increase your fluency while boosting your way of learning. Today’s episode is a special request from a dear listener, Sarah. She contacted me on the chat and she told me “Caroline, in french you usually drop the last letter. But how is it with the “plus” I can’t figure out when to say plu or plus“. When I read her question, I panicked a little bit because there was no way I could explain the rules in just two sentences on a chat while preparing dinner. I gave her a very simplified answer but we really need an episode. This is a topic that comes up a lot and a question that you will find in many French podcasts. Today is my turn to cover it. Stay tuned!

In this Episode

  • The rules you need to know how to pronounce the word “plus”
  • A challenge for you to shine


Share your answers in the comment section

I’m really looking forward to your answers to my little challenge. After a few contributions, I will post the answer to the quizz. Do you have any other words that you struggle to use in French? Is there something that you can’t seem to master no matter how hard you try? Don’t hesitate to share with me in the comment section.

      Coucou Lisa Nicole ! Merci pour tes réponses. Je suis très heureuse que tu aimes et écoutes le podcast, merci énormément. About the little exercise I gave, in the first sentence, “mince” is an adjective. In the fourth sentence, there’s some cake left, what does “tu en veux plus” mean?
