History and Culture
The German Alphabet is a vital part of the language, which is spoken by more than 130 million people in 38 countries of the world, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Belgium, and 33 other countries. The alphabet consists of the same 26 letters as English alphabet, plus some extra ones. German pronunciation of letters is in many places the same as English, as well as how to write them, however there are some unique letters and different ways of pronouncing some other letters.
Additional German letters:

Ä /ä sounds more like “e”
Ö/ ö sounds more like “oe”
Ü / ü sounds more like “ue”
ß sounds like “ss”
Sch: sounds like “sh”
Ch: sounds sometimes like “sh” or like “kh”.
