I've been learning German since October 2013. I know at some point I must decided how to pronounce "ich". Any opinions that might help me make this decision? Danke...

    It is hard to provide any help with pronunciation in written form that goes beyond the phonetic transcription that can be found in most dictionaries. – Hulk Feb 26 '14 at 8:09

    I think you should go for the correct version ;) – Emanuel Feb 26 '14 at 8:52

  • Yes, thank you. I've listened to different pronunciations, but wanted opinions to help me decide which one. – andy5995 Feb 26 '14 at 12:20
  • @andy_5995.. as for standard German, there is only one, in fact. Why would you think there are different ones? – Emanuel Feb 26 '14 at 18:34

What applies to your question is

/ç/ (as in ich, Mädchen)
