I think I know what it sounds like... something between a 'g' and an 'h', isn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Ehm.. it sounds very 'rough' like you're scraping your throat or something. I think it's the hardest part of learning Dutch

Anybody know how to pronounce "Raica", as in Raica Oliveira? I know I read somewhere it was pronounced "Hyka", but I remain unsure.

It's funny for me to see how you write pronounce of some foreign names. In Czech we read it as we see it. So Soukupova is S O U K U P O V A...

So-U-Kuu-Poe-Va we would read as SOUKŮPOUVA

I asked my dutch friend and she said Dewi is just dewi, but i'm not sure, like she's been to Australia for so long, and apparently dewi is also used to say goodbye in Dutch!?!?

But you know sometimes people get my name wrong too much, i'm so used to it, that i accept any kind of pronounciation, as long as i can recognize my own name, so i guess that must be the same case as models, i remember listening to a radio interview with Linda Evangelista about different pronounciations and variations of her last name. it's intersting! I think this was the interview!
