Tip of the Week 47 – 2019 – spelling email addresses

Sophie had a funny call last week. One of the apprentices called to tell her, that her email address has changed. She tried to spell it, but Sophie did not understand her and told her to just send her an email with the new address. That is why Sophie is taking a look at Tip #47: spelling email addresses.

alphabet

It is important that you are able to spell and also receive information. Some of the letters in English and German are pronounced the same but some of them are difficult. To avoid this problem, you can use the phonetic alphabet (B for Bravo) for clarity. However, not all people know the International Phonetic Alphabet so you can use other words to make it easier (B for Berlin). The problem letters for German speakers are normally:

A (for Alpha)              R (for Romeo)                        E (for Echo)               I (for India)

G (for Golf)                 J (for Juliet)                           V (for Victor)              W (for Whiskey)

Y (for Yankee)
