German - The chair is small

We just learned that in German to say this house is big you say Das Haus ist groß.

Let's learn about more things we see every day.

To say The chair is small, we say Der Stuhl ist klein

We can break it up into four words:
The - Der - sounds like day-rr /?/
chair - Stuhl - sounds like shtool /?/
is - ist - Sounds like isst /?/
small - klein - Sounds like klah-een /?/

So all together Der Stuhl ist klein sounds like day-rr shtool isst klah-een.
