BoarAh, that explains it!

Translation: « J’étais sanglier à la réunion »

Why wrong: In French, most final consonants aren’t pronounced. This can create confusion if you do this in English. For more information, click here. To be taken seriously…Presentation

Correct it: For words that end with r sound before the ed, the -ed should be pronounced like –de.  Don’t add an extra syllable. Say “I was bored at the meeting.”
