Now try the German alphabet

German pronunciation tip:

The letters in the German alphabet are the same as in English; however, there are four more letters which you will come across in the German language: ä, ö, ü and ß. These extra four letters, however, are not counted as part of the actual alphabet.
Once you are familiar with the pronunciation of the German language you will find it can be spoken more smoothly than you might imagine!
