I’m a happy camper today because it’s FRIDAY and I wanted to share a mini milestone with y’all! I can count ‘til 10 in German and English!

Mommy and I practiced last night and I nailed it! Mommy was quite excited! Can you count ‘til 10 in German? If not, you can learn it now!

One – Eins

(like the word ‘eye’ with ‘nz’ on the end])

Two- Zwei

(tsvy)

Three – Drei

(dry, the ‘r’ is pronounced guttural like in french)

Four – Vier

(like the english word ‘fear’)

Five – Fuenf

(feunf, the ‘ü’ is pronounced like the normal ‘u’ but you put more accent, just like when you’re angry and say on an very affected voice ‘you’, but put a big accent on ‘u’ and make it longer)

Six – Sechs

(zecks)

Seven – Sieben

(zeebhen)

Eight – Acht

(ahkt, the ‘ch’ is pronounced like the ‘j’ in Spanish ‘Juan’)

Nine – Neun

(noyn)

Ten – Zehn

(tsehn)

Happy Counting!
