comment Prononciation de « u » proche de « ou »
C'est difficile de juger avec un son isolé, mais je trouve french.about.com/library/media/wavs/u.wav atypique, intermédiaire entre [y] et [i].

Welcome to Stack Exchange. This is a questions and answers site, not a link collection. I'm afraid that questions asking for list of resources do very poorly in our system: they tend to accumulate random lists of vaguely-related dubiously-applicable links, and this one is shaping up to be no exception. See also meta.french.stackexchange.com/q/127 and meta.french.stackexchange.com/q/575 on our meta site.

comment How to say “something sucks” in French
I can't claim that this doesn't work in French, because it might work in some variant. But in French from France, this sounds weird and doesn't mean anything close to “cold-calling sucks”: “Dur dur” means that something is difficult, and “phoning” isn't a word.

comment Meaning of “imaginer des coiffures”
What makes you think that the literal translation “the barber/hairdresser imagines hairstyles” is not the intended meaning? I don't know any idiomatic expression that it could match. Please provide the context.

The accumulation of answers that just says “look at this site” and randomly get upvoted, downvoted or neither illustrates why this sort of link farm question doesn't work on Stack Exchange. I am closing this question which is officially frowned upon.
