German - This house is big

Let's learn about some of the things we see every day.

To say this house is big in German you say Das Haus ist groß.

We can break it up into four words:
This - Das - sounds like dah-ss /?/
house - Haus - sounds like house /?/
is - ist - Sounds like isst /?/
big - groß - Sounds like gross /?/

So all together Das Haus ist groß sounds like Zee zint ow-f-guh-raykt.
