It's really hard to learn German by reading. You will always have a deficit in pronouncing if you don't actively speak German. The hardest things for non native german speakers is usually the differentiation of "ch" and "sch". Especially the pronounciation of "ch" is really difficult for most people.

"Ch" is in some words like "Chor" or "Christus" used like in english, so basically spoken like the "C" in "Computer". However there are a lot of words where it's pronounced different, like "Hecht" "Schacht" "Wacht" or for example in the number 8 "Acht". There it's pronounced a lot different. I can't really explain it in written form, I'd have to sent you a voice text for that.

Google translator does not do it entirely right but not entirely wrong either.

And of course the "ß". This is a realy weird letter and only used in a few words like "Spaß" or "Floß".

Correct.
No.

Just use the translator.
Acht  (german) will be pronounced like acht in dutch. Aght sounds like "achet" in german

Korrekt. Du hast einfach das wiederholt, was er auch geschrieben hat, meins aber falsch und deins richtig genannt.

Er meinte, Acht wird wie im Holländischen ausgesprochen, dann meinte ich "Correct". Du sagtest, es sei falsch, hast aber noch einmal geschrieben, dass es exakt so wäre. xD

Wenn du dir das "Aght" (was er geschrieben hat) beim Google Transator eingibst und es dir anhörst, hört sich das nicht wie Acht an. Also kann es nicht korrekt sein, was du allerdings ihm bestätigt hat. Hätte er "Acht" und nicht "Aght" geschrieben, dann wäre es was ganz anderes.

Seine Hauptaussage war, dass man es wie im Holländischen ausspricht. :D

Lemme just get my translator. Hinkel! Where are you!
I recognize a few words like schreiben, which sounds like schrijven, which is writting. All i can see, is me having a lot difficulty soon.
