Learning a new language can seem daunting. One of my lecturers always says that one has to start with the familiar and move towards the unfamiliar. This is why I would, in order to learn the pronunciation of a language, recommend your starting with perfect cognates. These words, otherwise known as friendly allies, are words that are the same in both German and English. The only difference is the pronunciation of the word. So, you already know the word’s meaning and spelling, now only add the pronunciation as well as the gender and you are good to go.
Have fun with this little bit of familiarity in the unfamiliar territory of German.
