I know it sounds weird, but he's asking to pronounce it in English. If this makes sense, English English French and USA English French have quite different pronunciations (and obvioiusly neither are proper French). USA English French tends to lengthen many of the vowels. ("Je sweez aahshaahtay de vuw raahncaahntray"). The A becomes somewhere between an English A and a long O.
So, in received USA pronunciation, i'd go for "Laah Shaahs oh paahpiyon extrem".
I'm sure that clears things up no end!
