Week 2: Places in Germany, Austria and Switzerland

Introduction

Described image
Figure 1

This week, we’d like to take you on a journey through the German speaking countries. You’ll be finding out a bit more about some places and how to pronounce them the German way. This should help you to get a feel for German pronunciation and understand some of the specific sounds that might be different to sounds in your own language.

Apart from practising pronunciation, you will also learn how to introduce yourself and say where you are from.
