There is quite a lot to say about the French language, its history and how its alphabet came to be. There are also specific rules everyone really serious to study the French alphabet should be familiar with. Shortly, you will find on this platform a dedicated course on French phonetics, which I hope will be useful to the intermediate and advanced French language learner.
