Is "ich" pronounced like it is in German? The audio sounds like "ch"

There's something really strange about the audio, true. No, it's not, for a Polish ear the German "ich" sounds like "iś", so that's not even remotely close.

Many pronunciation guides compare the h = ch (same sound, just an orthography issue) sound in Polish to the sound in the original, Scottish pronunciation of Loch Ness.

Could you spell it phonetically?

Well, if you know IPA, that's [ix]. The x sound (do not confuse it with what the letter x sounds like) isn't really used in English, apart from Scotland.

But if you have problems with that, I guess better just go with "h" like in "hat".
