1. Listen to native speakers as often as possible. This will help kids get a feel for the rhythm and flow of the language.
2. Pay attention to the way words are pronounced in different contexts. For example, the same word may have a different pronunciation when it's used in a question or at the end of a sentence.
3. Practice pronouncing French words out loud, focusing on the correct placement of your tongue and lips.
4. Use a mirror to check your mouth position when you're unsure of how to pronounce a particular sound.
5. Record yourself speaking and then listen back to see how well you're doing.
