Welcome to Akzentfrei!

The essence of the course lies in the title itself. Pronunciation and intonation is the backbone of spoken language. And if a native speaker tells you that you speak "Akzentfrei", it's about the highest compliment one can receive.

In this 10-module course, you'll not only learn the rules and essentials of German pronunciation, but also a lot of interesting and cool methods of practice to help you get there. We'll go from distinguishing the difference between ch and sch sounds to pronouncing words like Eierschalensollbruchstellenverursacher with absolute ease.

The topics covered in this first part of the course are:

  • The Alphabet

  • Special Characters

  • Vowels

  • Diphthongs

  • Consonants

  • Consonant Combinations

  • Long and short vowel sounds

There are many more topics to delve into, but those will be covered in the next part of this course.

As with anything, the magic is in the doing. Practice all the tips and tricks suggested in this course and you'll soon start sounding more and more like a native speaker.
