In French consonants 'p', 't' and 'k' are not aspirated.

In English, consonants 'p', 't' and 'k' are aspirated. To understand better, if you are an English speaker, do this test: put your hand right in front of your mouth. When you say the words 'pop' or 'tot' you may feel a puff of air. That is aspiration.

There is no aspiration of any consonants in French, just as in Spanish. If you wish to sound more like a native speaker, follow these hints:

1. 'p' ==> try softening your lips
2. 't' ==> soften the tip of your tongue
3. 'k' ==> press all the root of your tongue against the top of the palate, rather than clicking the tongue.
