What is the capital of Tunisia?

Are “tué” and “tu” and “tout” pronounced the same?

To answer your question, “u” and “ou” are pronounced differently in French. However your first two sentences are incorrect, which is probably adding to the difficulty. The first should read J’ai tué mon ami and it’s not totally clear what the second is trying to say.

For a real example of somewhere this can make a difference, note the difference between Vous lavez-vous? (Do you wash yourself?) and Vous l’avez vu? (Did you see it?) or of course dessus and dessous, or cul and cou

Nevertheless tu, tué and tout have all three different pronunciations.

In International Phonetic Alphabet

For the records, sounds are from Wikimédia.

The three are pronounced differently. I don’t know the IPA codes, sadly, but you can see the differences there:

You probably pronounce “tout” correctly, but “tu” is a very different sound.
