"Mijn dochter gebruikt de computer."

Translation:My daughter uses the computer.

Can anyone help me understand the phonetic difference between "dochter" and "dokter"?


In dutch "ch" is pronounced the same as the "g", not like a "k" as it is in the English "school". But the way a "g" or "ch" is pronounced in Dutch is very hard to compare to any English letters, so maybe somebody else can help us both with that.


Adding to what AGMBrus said, the word gek (crazy) begins with the ch/g sound and ends with the k sound: example.
