How to pronounce the American city 'Detroit' in French?

As a language enthusiast, I recently learned how to pronounce the American city "Detroit" in French, and I thought I'd share this little linguistic tidbit with you all. In French, the pronunciation of "Detroit" is quite similar to its English counterpart, with a slight twist. To say it correctly, you'll want to pronounce it as "Dé-twa." The accent on the "e" gives it a soft sound, and the "oi" is pronounced like "wa," as in "water." Give it a try next time you're talking about the "Motor City" with your French-speaking friends!
