Could you please teach me how to pronounce the name of the famous German car company “Volkswagen” in English? I would request you to mention the phonetic transcription for it?



Best regards,

Hi,



As you probably know, “Volkswagen” sounds very different in German and English.



Here is an IPA transcription for the way that the average US English speaker says this word: ˈvɔlksˌweɪgən



Best,



Amy
