О курсе

This updated course is the complete guide to the German alphabet.

You will learn

  • how to pronounce the letters of the alphabet in German, including the extra letters ä, ö, ü and ß
  • how to spell email addresses and other words in German
  • how to spell words using the German spelling alphabet

You will also learn

  • how the letters sound within a word, all the vowels, consonants and letter combinations
  • how German words sound so that you can pronounce them, even if you don't know them

Listening exercises will reinforce what you have learned. And there is an option to practise some tongue twisters.

Anybody who has started learning German or has an interest in the German language will benefit from this course.

Intermediate or advanced German learners probably won't need this course but may still have fun practising their listening skills.
