Lol, of course it all boils down to personal preference. French is usually considered the most romantic language though.
I'd have to say German is one of the harshest sounding languages.
There are three different ways to pronounce août that I commonly hear and "out" is one of them.The worst language experience was in 10th grade, they didn't have a French language teacher, so assigned some woman that had no clue to teach. I dropped out after the second class when she didn't know how to pronounce the month of August, Août, she decided it was pronounced "out". I told her she was wrong, she disagreed. If a teacher doesn't know the subject, they should at least check.
I'm French and I've never heard it pronounced as anything other than OOT. I'm referring to the correct french pronunciation, I'm sure some people mispronounce it.There are three different ways to pronounce août that I commonly hear and "out" is one of them.
Ah, I was wondering how bad it was up in Canada, not as bad as I thought. We have people in the US with such bad slang that there are joke dictionaries like Texan to English. :tongue:I'm a Québecois and I've heard a-ou, ou and oute. I would say 'ou' is the most common pronunciation here. When you said 'out' I thought you meant 'oute', like in the examples you posted.
Yes I got that. Hence why I included the emoticon to indicate my response was light hearted.As an aside, please note I mean "romantic" as being about love/romance. Of course, Portuguese, along with Spanish, French, Italian, etc., are Romance languages, i.e. languages evolved from Vulgar (i.e. vernacular) Latin.
