    Anyone speak German?
    Hoping someone here speaks German. My third grade daughter needs to do a presentation for school. She's made a culture kit on Germany and 1 of the items is a Schultüte Going back in time trying to remember my oma & mother speaking, is it pronounced shool toot?

    It's been a while since HS German, but I'd say "SHOOL toot eh".

    In general, AFAIR, German doesn't have much in the way of silent letters.

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Is this the cone-shaped container that you fill with little goodies? My mother has always given us kids and the grandkids what she calls a sugartoote when we graduate kindergarten. They're always decorated and were so cute! I have a pic of my son with one that was almost as tall as he was. It's a tradition I'll keep going!

    jrrl's transcription is basically right, apart from the fact that it does not reflect the softened L and the umlaut U (which is read as [yu])

    From my daughter-
    Thank you for helping me with my project and answering my mom's question.

    From me-
    Many thanks John, Trust & Geno! We are now practicing this.
    April that's what it is, school cone. It does make a nice tradition. We got ours first day of 1st grade. My children it was a little different. My mom had cancer and as it was pretty serious and she didn't think she'd be around she gave my daughter one first day of kindergarten and my got one for his first day of 3 year old preschool.

    Mellie,

    Hope your Mom is doing alright. It is a wonderful tradition. We plan on keeping it up also for all the children in our families. Take care!
