Pronunciation of 'fantastische'

[spelling en uitspraak]
How do you pronounce 'gezellig'? What is the difference between 'eu' and 'ui'? How do you write...? You can use the phonetic keyboard if you are familiar with phonetic symbols.

Fantastische - do you pronounce it [ fɑn'tɑstisxə ] or [ fɑn'tɑstisə ] ?

We zeggen [ fɑn'tɑstisə ].

In the endings -isch and -ische, we don't pronounce the ch and the i is pronounced as an ie.
