Bar—say Bar like bar but a little deeper: [Bahr]
au—say au like the lyric in the song, “December, 1963 (Oh, What A Night)” by The Four Seasons: [oh]. If you like this song, check out the French version, “Ces Soirées-Là" by singer and rapper Yannick.
Chocolat—say Chocolat starting with Cho pronounced [Show] like Tom Cruise’s line in the film Jerry Maguire, “Show me the money!” In the middle, co is pronounced [ko] like my nickname Coco or favorite perfume by Chanel. The ending lat is the same sound in the classic French phrase, “Ooh la [la!]” or the rapid-fire, “Ooh la la la la la la la!” and the excitement you feel while enjoying delicious food with wine. All together, it goes something like this: [Showkola]
