The german alphabet and its pronounciation

One thing that is comparatively simple about German is its alphabet set which is very similar to English, albeit the difference in its pronunciation !

Here is how it goes:)

A – ah B – beh C – tseh D – deh E – eh F – eff G – geh H – hah I – ee J – yot K – kah L – ell M – emm N – enn O – oh P – peh Q – koo R – err S – ess T – teh U – oo V – fow W – veh X – iks Y – üpsilon Z – tsett

Apart from that it also has some umlauts

In German, there are three umlauted vowels: Ä, Ö, and Ü. Here are their pronunciations:

Ä – pronounced like the “e” in “bed” but with your mouth shaped like you're saying “ah” Ö – pronounced like the “i” in “bird” but with rounded lips Ü – pronounced like the “ee” in “bee” but with rounded lips

It's important to note that the umlauted vowels have slightly different sounds compared to their non-umlauted counterparts. For example, “ä” is different from “a,” “ö” is different from “o,” and “ü” is different from “u.”

I am not a teacher, educator or an expert in German. Learning German is a pass-time hobby for me. I have A2 level fluency. What I write here are things I have learnt on the go. It's unorthodox. It follows no syllabus and is tailored towards my own utility and use case over perfection.
