That I understand.
Pretty sure the ch in milch is like the one in ich and unlike the one in nacht
I think the best approximation of the sound is the h in the word “hue”
OK, so there is an exhalation of air at the end?
Kind of catlike
I think High German Hoch Deutsch they may say it like an sh
The male and female voices seem to differ a bit too on the pronunciation.
It’s a fricative, so there’s a puff of air. Like English F or sh
It’s not a stop, so there’s air.
It's hard to say it 🙃
It takes some time for sure
In some dialects of English (including general American) it’s the same sound that’s in “human”
The h glide sort of thing
Not everyone says it like that
Most people do though
I will practice! Thanks for the assist you two.
It’s much more toward the front of the mouth than the ch in noch
That one’s way in the back, this is at the alveolar ridge
Ich kann sehr gut Deutsch sprechen 👌 dm me or just speak here
I can help you with your pesky german ch's

Looking for someone to practice French with.
Helping me get my accent to a understandable level would be greatly appreciated
@Johnboy I can do that. I lived in Montreal for a couple of years when I was a kid- my French is pretty good.
Anyone in @here well versed in Latin
I'm thinking of learning another language (either picking up Spanish where I left off in high school or learning German from scratch). Which would you recommend and is duolingo any good?
Duolingo is fine for vocabulary, it’s less good when it comes to internalizing grammar. There’s really no way around the latter without slogging through a reference grammar.
Any fluent German speakers here? I have two sentences for translation; eBay seller can't understand what google translate spit out.
"Can you please verify that there are no cracks in the plastic worm/reduction gear? My motor works but the gear is cracked and it prevents operation."
it's called a worm gear, but also known as a reduction gear
Koennen sie bitte sagen, wenn dieses Stück arbeitet? is a shitty way to ask but thats the best i can do atm
