There are a lot of silent letters in French, and you usually do not pronounce the final consonant, unless that final consonant is
C, R, F or L (except verbs that end in -r).
French slurs
S and x are pronounced as z; d as t; and f as v in these liaisons.
rapid(e)ment, lent(e)ment, sauv(e)tage (pronounced ra-peed-mawn, not ra-peed-uh-mawn)
sous l(e) bureau, chez l(e) docteur (pronounced sool bewr-oh, not soo luh bewr-oh)

je n(e), de n(e) (zhuhn, duhn, not zhuh nuh or duh nuh)
j(e) te, c(e) que (shtuh, skuh, not zhuh tuh or suh kuh - note the change of the pronunciation of the j as well)
Stress on syllables is not as heavily pronounced as in English and it generally falls on the last syllable of the word.
Intonation usually only rises for yes/no questions, and all other times, it goes down at the end of the sentence.

Nouns ending in -age and -ment are usually masculine, as are nouns ending with a consonant.
Nouns ending in -ure, -sion, -tion, -ence, -ance, -té, and -ette are usually feminine.

ce lit-là that bed
