The Leader in Educational Games for Kids! Times Tables Farm themed for preschool or kindergarten. Also check out my English to French number table with pronunciations. Thanks to my daughter Tasha for encouraging me to add this to the site! 1998-2018 DLTK’s Sites – All Rights Reserved. The German alphabet, like English, consists of 26 basic letters. German, Umlaut describes the dotted letter, not just the dots.

The following table includes a listing of all these letters and a guide to their pronunciation. As in English, letter sounds can differ depending upon where within a word the letter occurs. Short ‘e’ as ‘e’ in ‘pet’. Austria, pronounced like ‘z’ only when it appears between two vowels, pronounced like ‘s’ otherwise. Umlauts were originally written as ‘ae’, ‘oe’, and ‘ue’. German vowels are either long or short, but never drawled as in some English dialects.

A simple method of recognizing whether a vowel is likely to be long or short in a German word is called the Rule of double consonants. This “rule” is applied to the use of ‘ss’ vs. Ah-oo’ is pronounced like ‘ow’ in English ‘cow’. In written and printed German, ‘ae’ can be an acceptable substitute for ‘ä’ if the latter is unavailable. Ay-oo’ is pronounced like ‘oi’ in English word ‘oil’. Ay-ee’ is pronounced like the ‘ei’ in ‘height’. Note that this appears to be the opposite for these two vowel combinations in English, where the rule is that the first vowel is long and the second is silent.

Consider this word: ‘die’ — in German it is pronounced ‘dee’, in English like ‘dye’. The word mein in German is the English ‘mine’. Most German consonants are pronounced similar to the way they are in English, with exceptions noted in column 3 above. Pronounced like ‘k’ in many words of Greek origin like Christ or Charakter, but like ‘sh’ in words of French origin, and ‘tch’ in words of English origin. See also the discussion of “ich-sound” below.

These letters are pronounced similarly in English and German. However, in pronouncing these letters, the German extends his tongue up to the back of the base of the teeth, creating a more dental sound. As noted above, ‘d’ is a ‘dental d’ except at the end of a word, where it becomes a ‘dental t’. German ‘Ess-tsay-hah’ is pronounced like ‘sh’, not ‘sk’ as in English.
