Salut,

Croissant is one of my favorite food, and I love my croissant with some confiture.
Would you help me pronounce 'croissant' and 'confiture' properly, please?

Merci, merci beaucoup!

To pronounce the spellings below, I kept it simple and approachable by an American English interpretation: croissant - krwah-sahn confiture - kohn-fee-tuhr The way I pronounce the last syllable on "confiture" is that I lightly touch the sides of my upper teeth (molars/incisors) with the sides of my tongue & thus making a small "u" with it as I pass air from my vocal chords. Hope that helps.
