How to pronounce tu in French?

I'm wondering if tu shall be pronounced like "ju" in French or "tu"? From recording, it sounds like "ju" more than "tu". Thanks. I am confused by this question for a long time!

Yes, it's somewhere between the two (i.e. not pronounced like a Spanish "tu", which is a hard 't' sound). To me, it's a bit like saying "tchew", but with the lips more pursed, with a trailing part almost like a quiet whistle.

Mystery solved. I feel in the same way you do. Thanks a lot.
