Oh, so the voice of "ch" is somewhat like Polish sound of "ś" Very Happy
Now, thank you for that link!!! Funny how pronunciation of one short word can be complicated to explain Very Happy

We, in Russia, can say «Schleich» as german word, it's not difficult, cause Russian has very much different sounds.
It's so strange to know that english speaking people say «Schlike», really. And it's SO funny when those people can say «kh» sound XD Excuse me, but it's so.
But no one russian say «Schleish» as Andreas said. I have learnt German for some time, and so I know that it's just one of the ways how to say such sounds. When I read at German, I say «sh», but many people prefer classic way «h».

If you don't speak German or have never taken German classes it's difficult to grasp the idea of how to pronounce the "ch" at the end. Sort of like "Schleish" but add your throat into it... The link posted above explains perfectly.

LeeAnn is right. It's probably hard to grasp without having had a class or having heard it over and over.

It doesn't really sound like 'SchlieSH' though (to my ears). Imagine starting to say 'Schleik' (that is, 'shlike' rhymes with 'Mike') and then instead of hitting the hard 'k' at the end, you kind of give up and rasp out hard 'h' sound instead.

My own view is that if you're American and you pronounce 'Schleich' like 'Shlike' (rhymes with 'Mike'), you're doing fine. If you're pronouncing it 'Shlick', you should change. (Being flexible and open to new information is a good trait. Very Happy)
