Hail Mary in French: “Je Vous Salue Marie” – Audio Recording
Here is the audio recording of the Hail Mary Prayer in French. I first recorded it at a normal speed and then, recorded it at a slower, much more enunciated speed so you can train on repeating after me.

Je vous salue, Marie pleine de grâce ;

Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes et Jésus,
le fruit de vos entrailles, est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu,
