Eric, you wouldn't get away with verre as in glass around here. If I said that, they'd all jump on me and make me say "veRR", I'd have to sound the second R
You should hear them make me say échaRpe.....took me several attempts!
Also, Eric, could you please answer my question on the where- is-mint thread because I wrote something en express for you
Sue, I use wordreference for the pronunciation too but I feel I would like to acquire a nicer sounding accent in my speech all round. I think it's something I'd really enjoy doing.
