Es-tu prêt ? / Êtes-vous prêts ? How could I give you the pronounciation ?

T'es prêt ? = are you ready (to a man) = [ "tay pray"] T'es prête ? = are you ready (to a girl) = [ "tay pret" ] Êtes vous prêt ? = are you ready (formal) = [ "et vu pray"] Sorry that's all I can do for the pronunciation Hope it helps ;)

The French U is quite unique and hard to explain, you need to heard it and repeat it a good 20 times before you get something passable. The "oo" sound (used but most learners as a substitute) is not acceptable, it leads to confusion.

To him: Es-tu prêt? [é ty prè] To her: es-tu prête? [é ty prètə] (this ə is very subtle)
