How to Perfect Your French Pronunciation with Rocket Record

You can sound like you ARE a native French speaker when you use Rocket Record, the pronunciation tool from Rocket French! (Note that for true voice recognition you will need to use the Chrome browser.)

Try it here with the transcript from one of our Interactive Audio Lessons: 

Rocket Record allows you to listen to the way native speakers say hundreds of French words and phrases. Then you can record yourself and accurately compare your speech with that of the native speaker.

It really is a fantastic way to learn French by increasing the amount of French vocabulary you know, and at the same time massively improving your French pronunciation and accent. Rocket Record is great for your confidence!

Virtually every French word and phrase in these lessons uses our Rocket Record voice recognition technology to get your pronunciation sounding as close as possible to a native French speaker.

How to Understand Spoken French with Testing

Most of our French lessons take advantage of the Testing section, which contains our exclusive testing tools. Testing has three testing components, Hear It Say It!, Write It!, and Know It! all scientifically designed to enhance your recall and understanding of spoken French.

1. Hear it Say it!

Training your ear for French can be one of the things that French learners find the hardest to master. That’s why we came up with Hear It Say It!

Here’s how Hear lt Say It! works. A randomly selected audio track from within each lesson is played. After listening to the track you’re prompted to record yourself saying the word, compare the way you say it to the French speaker, and rate how well you understand what the speaker was saying. A very powerful tool to tune your ear to spoken French!

2. Write it!

It's one thing being able to pronounce French words correctly, it's quite another figuring out how those sounds turn into written words.

Write It! is the self-testing tool that lets you find out how well developed your French ear really is and get you used to the French sentence structure. Just listen to the native speaker saying a word or phrase, then try to write it correctly in the space provided. There's a special character keyboard available if you need it, so you can get it exactly right.

When you're done click reveal, and you get to see how well you did, and get a rating for that word or phrase.

Test your writing skills with Write It! here:

3. Know it!

Now, all the training in the world won’t help you if someone is talking to you in French and your mind freezes when it’s your turn to speak! That’s why we developed Know It! , the self-testing tool that really puts you on the spot!

Know It! pulls randomly selected English words and phrases out of each lesson and prompts you to record yourself saying the French translation, compare yourself to the French speaker, and then rate how well you did! You really need to know your stuff for this one but the benefits are huge in maximizing how quickly you can come up with the right thing to say when someone is speaking French to you!

Who am I?

Bonjour, my name’s Marie-Claire, and I’m the host of Rocket French. I come from the beautiful country of France, which means French is my native language. That also means that I know just how hard it can be to learn a new language, because I’ve been there learning English. Together with my English speaking colleague, Paul, I want to help you to speak and understand French while cutting your learning time in half.

I’ve travelled the world over and have found that languages are a great way to meet people and discover new things. I really want to make your French learning experience rewarding and fun!

My goal, just like Rocket Languages’, is to help you reach your goal.
