I'm trying to help ds2 learn his French vocabulary off a list given to him by his teacher but there is no guide as to pronunciation. Most I know but languages are really not my strong point and there's a few I have no idea. I've looked in our French dictionary but there is no phonetic guide.
Does anyone know of a good free website where we can quickly look things up please? I've had a bit of a google with no luck as many then expect you to sign up and pay.

The Google Translate site has an audio button, you could try that.

Try the forvo website - free with pronunciation added by native speakers. Sometimes you get a bit of variation but mostly reliable.

I created an article few weeks ago about french pronunciation. It is pretty complete in my opinion

You can also check on youtube. For some example to practice french.

Let me know you need anything else.

Thank you

Oh thanks Talk
I didn't even think of your tube blush
Going to have a look at your article. It would be nice to learn alongside the children.

For listening and speaking practice there are video clips on the BBC and a website called for younger students.
Topical if you listened to Radio 4 presenter Sarah Montague talking about education on Monday night. It was interesting! -
