If you're not sure how to read a given word in your handout, look it up in a dictionary and press play to hear how it is pronounced. Please note that I'm recommending some links below, but it is always advisable to have your own Pronunciation Dictionary (these days they are accompanied with CDs: Longman Pronunciation Dictionary or English Pronouncing Dictionary). Don't worry if you can't get it right within the first 30 repetitions, your muscles need to adjust to its production. It will definitely take SOME weeks to come.
