  • What's up guys!

  • So for once in my entire life, I'm making a serious video.

  • No comedy. No jokes. No nothing!

  • At least I'll try.

  • But before that, I have a question for you.

  • Do you want to get the power to make anyone fall for you?

  • And when I say anyone I mean boys, girls, miscellaneous, cats, dogs.

  • I'm no one to judge.

  • Well of course you want that!

  • You clicked on this video!

  • And the secret to get everything you've ever wanted

  • aka how to speak with a French accent.

  • And ze secret eez...

  • being French!

  • I said no bad jokes. Damn it.

  • Anyway, so let's get to the heart of the matter.

  • And start with the sound that defines the French accent,

  • which is the "r" /r/

  • Okay so do it with me now.

  • /r/

  • But yeah, the /r/ sound doesn't exist at all in English.

  • So you probably need to train.

  • The secret behind the sound is that you need to control it.

  • For example, we don't say croissant , we say croissant.

  • So if you want to sound French, you need your /r/ to sound soft and controlled.

  • Number two, in French, we don't have /v/ sound. (/th/)

  • I mean /v/! vat, vis. (that, this)

  • Anyway!

  • So if you want to sound French, if you want to be French,

  • if you want to make love to people just by talking to them,

  • (that escalated quickly)

  • you just need to remove that /v/, vis,

  • the /th/ sound by z.

  • In that, a sentence like "This evening, me and my brother went to the park. This was wonderful."

  • would become

  • "Zis evening, me and my brother went to ze park, zees was wonderful."

  • Number three, if you want to sound like a real French, speaking English like a Spanish cow,

  • (French idioms are the best!)

  • You need to drop the "h".

  • What the f**k am I doing with this video...

  • So what I was saying is that you need to stop pronouncing the "h".

  • In French and while doing a French accent, the "h" is silent.

  • In fact, you wouldn't say "We are going to the hostel."

  • but "We are going to ze ostel."

  • And finally, what defines our accent, is that it's fancy and sexy.

  • We try to kiss and make love with words.

  • And I guess you wonder how to do that.

  • Well, you only need to make your vowel sound small by barely moving your mouth.

  • Make everything you say very soft.

  • Melodic, becomes a lover he, she, it (?) always wanted you to be.

  • And here it is!

  • You just need to learn how to act like a French,

  • and you'll be able to go eat snails in France with your baguette.

  • And no one will ever be able to know that you're not one of us.

  • And if they ask you if you speak French, you already know what to say!

  • Putain!

  • And this is the end of how to speak English with a French accent.

  • I hope you'll like the video.

  • If you did, don't forget to put a thumbs up, share the video, subscribe if you have not.

  • I will see you in my next video, and in the meantime, don't forget to smile, and bye bye!

What's up guys!
