German - Her hands are soft

We just learned in German our table is short is Unser Tisch ist kurz.

To say her hands are soft you would say Ihre Hände sind weich.
We can break it up into four words:
Her - Ihre - sounds like ee-uh /?/
hands - Hände - sounds like han-duh /?/
are - sind - Sounds like zint /?/
soft - weich - Sounds like vah-ee-hhk /?/

So all together Ihre Hände sind weich sounds like Ee-uh han-duh zint vah-ee-hhk.
