- For Teachers
I have to questions:
1. How to pronounce the word : Deutsche?
2. When you read the following sentence: he asks me a question, do both S on the word asks are voiced? or is there another way to read it?
Thanks in advance.

Just to clarify from your initial post, there are no voiced consonants in 'asks' at all. Both 's' are voiceless alveolar fricatives /s/.
Pronounce Deutsche [doy chuh] It should be two syllables because of the 'e' at the end which is pronunced like a schwa. If there is no 'e' at the end, it's pronounced [doych].
