There are a lot of silent letters in French, and you usually do not pronounce the final
consonant, unless that final consonant is c, r, f or l (except verbs that end in -r).
Stress & Intonation: Stress on syllables is not as pronounced as in English and it generally
falls on the last syllable of the word. Intonation usually only rises for yes/no questions, and
all other times, it goes down at the end of the sentence.
NOUN GENDER: All nouns in French have a gender, either masculine or feminine. It is
very important to learn a noun's gender along with the noun itself because articles (a, the)
and adjectives change depending on the gender of the noun they precede or follow.
Notice that the masculine words are preceded by le and feminine words are preceded by
la both of which mean the.
