Hi there! Those words always drive me crazy.
I have searched how to pronounce but they´re quite confusing.
How do I say?
By the way, are they old-fashioned or just formal?

Both words as you have mentioned before come from the French language. They are not old-fashioned. They are formal.

Out of pure curiosity, another word that comes from the French language: savoir-faire (noun, formal).You can use that word as a synonym of know-how.

Savoir – French verb it means: to know
Faire- French verb it means: to do, to make
