German - His face is rough

We just learned in German her hands are soft is Ihre Hände sind weich..

To say his face is rough you would say Sein Gesicht ist rau.
We can break it up into four words:
His - Sein - sounds like zah-een /?/
face - Gesicht - sounds like gah-zikt /?/
is - ist - Sounds like isst /?/
rough - rau - Sounds like rah-oo /?/

So all together Sein Gesicht ist rau sounds like Zah-een gah-zikt isst rah-oo.
