Pronunciation Principles for final consonants

It's said in Learning Companion that all consonants are silent at the end of a French word (only when each word is spoken individually). However, isn't it true that some French words, e.g., avec, tour and chef, the final consonants are pronounced even when they are spoked individually?

Hi there, yes, you are right. Not all consonants at the end of a word are silent, but most. I will pass this on to the French team. Thank you very much for making us aware of this. :D
