Is the audio (mobile - woman talking) ok? The "sprechen" sounds a bit weird to me
same. it wasn't that she was German it was that the "chen" at the end sounded like "tine"
How do you pronounce "sprechen"? I hear the sound "shhh" in the "sp" of "sprechen." Can someone help please?
unrelated, but - i keep seeing pretty much everybody here speaking 7 or 8 languages. i am stuck here with mediocre german and horrific french
This just sounds like a charming sequel to the Horrible Histories books. Rotten Romans Horrific French Mediocre German .....I like it.
Lmao I'm in the same boat as you! I have horrible German and that's it because my brain is very slow at learning languages :')
Also, we can't say "we talk English." People would look at us too strangely.
I've heard a few ways, but how do you pronounce a German "r"? Some people do a trill thing that I don't know how to do. Some people pronounce it kinda like a french "r", and some people do an English "r". Help?
The English word "English" is pronounced as if spelled "Ingglish" -- the first vowel is like in "thing", not as in "Bengali".
Also, English pronounced "ng" between vowels as /ŋg/ in most cases (e.g. "finger" sounds like "fing-ger" and doesn't rhyme with "singer).
In German, Englisch has a "short E" in the first syllable, and there's no "g" sound after the "ng".
So you have "eng-lish" versus "ing-glish".
Do the dialects that don't have the sound e as in bed always replace with a e as in er?
We are speaking English and We speak English, any difference in the German in the two statements?
Wir sprechen Englisch. And???
How to say? You are awesome, Mizinamo. Thanks!
Du bist ___, Mizinamo. Danke!
Why can't you put "We are talking English" in? It should be the same as "We speak English"
We are talking English sounds like an answer to a question such as "what language are you talking?". We speak English is when you are telling someone the languages you can speak.
When you say "sprechen" does the first "e" have an "I" sound to it? Forgive me if I'm wrong, but that is what I hear from this crazy fast talking lady on the audio. I wish she was slower, so I could really hear the pronunciation. :-\
I can't make any sense of it; how do you know when to use sprech- and when to use sprich-?
