Learn German - Pronouncing The German Alphabet

German Alphabet

Learning the German alphabet is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. Without it, you will not be able to say words properly even if you know how to write those words. The better you pronounce a letter in a word, the more understood you will be in speaking the German language.
Below is a table showing the German alphabet and how it is pronounced in English, and finally examples of how those letters would sound if you place them in a word.
