Test – Das ABC

I had so much fun recording this audio with my 3-year-old daughter. :)

 

First, you get to listen to both of us telling you the whole German alphabet one more time:

 

 

 

Now, grab a pen and write down the letters we are saying:

 

 

 

Check them against the letters in the answer key ("download answers").

 

 

And here is a video shot a bit later when my daughter was 4! :) Enjoy!

    Thank you for the great video, i am a bit confuse should the letter (R) pronounced as an (A) when it comes at the end of the sentence or only if combined with the letter (E) as in immer ?

    viele danke

      Hallo Alaa,

       

      yes, you are right. When you have the letter combination “er” within the same syllable, it is usually pronounced like the letter “a” (at the end of the word): “immer”, “Computer”, … or “ea” (at the beginning or middle of the word): “erst” (first), “werfen” (to throw), …

       

      Bis bald,

    Hi Juliane,

    I have guessed almost all the alphabets correctly. But finding it difficult to differentiate in ‘I’ and ‘E’ as both sound similar.

    Can you please help me on this?

    Thanks,

    Navaid

      Hi Navaid,

       

      I am thinking about making a video comparing the two sounds, but they can actually differ depending on which letters come before or after them, on whether they are long or short. There is a video I already made on the different sounds of the E, which can be found on Youtube:

       

      But you mean the sound of the I and the E as single letters, right?

       

      Bis bald,

      Juliane

    Wow! I thought I knew the alphabet by now, but when I listen to it without the letters in front of me to see, it is not that easy to recognise them. I am curious to see how it will go with my two boys when they do this lesson on Monday.

    Thank you Melissa for helping your mommy xx

      Hi Deidre,

      I will see if I can upload some more versions of the alphabet to this lesson by Monday. Melissa knows the alphabet by now, so this should be fun! 🙂

      Bis bald,

      Juliane
