How to correctly pronounce these words, schneien and scheinen.


I am having difficulty making the words schneien and scheinen sound different when I say them. I am also having trouble distinguishing between the two when I hear them.

Any tricks or advice on saying these two words correctly, please.

    Well, if you have got problems with the pronunciation, take a closer look at the syllables:

    schnei - en [der Schnee]
    schei - nen [der Schein]
