You guys sound like you're having trouble. I don't have trouble pronouncing Noir, but that's because I've taken most of my classes for the past 11 years in french. Speak English at home, French during class. I may speak it, but I'm not as fluent as someone that that was their first language. And if you're wondering, I easily do essays and stuff like that in French or English, not that essays are easy of course
. I was born in Montreal, Québec after all.
So after I've trailed off for about 100km, back to Noir. It's hard to type something how it is supposed to be pronounced. I bet that most of you guys are trying to say the same thing, but just think of different spelling for the word. You'll just have to learn from someone in person, it would be so much easier. But all of you are as close as you can get.
