How to say Dr Oetker
Unless, you are a native German, it is very likely that even
if you are familiar with one of the products that you may
be unsure as to how you actually pronounce Dr Oetker. Oetker
is a common surname in Germany, but in the UK and Ireland
it is fair to say there are not many Oetkers listed in the
local phone directory. It really is quite easy to say - it
is pronounced Dr Urtker. Simply substituting the UR for the
OE makes it easy to say.
