You don't pronounce the t, and "ain" are combined to make a sound where each letter are indistinguishable, not quite like in English but close.
His last name can is between low and law. Not certain how to explain the ending, kinda like run, but with no "n" if that makes any sense
>>
>>8608950

>Eve

Like "Eva" from Evangelion or "Eve" from Wall-E
>>
>>8608933
It's just like "E". I don't even pronounce it with the v. So like E say lawr ahn

nigh-key

people pronounce it "nike" with no "ee" on the end drive me nuts

i.e. britbongs
>>
>>8610432
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cara_Delvigne#cite_note-3
>>
>>8610403
Apperantly you have to pronounce the "e" at the end

I've always pronounced it "hike" but with a "n" at the biggining.

The correct way of saying the word Nike, which means victory in ancient Greek which is where the brand got the idea, is "knee-kay". However, the correct pronunciation of the brand name itself is "nigh-key". Don't ask why

>>8610474

>Assche
Since I'm geman I pronounce it like the german word "Asche" (ash). I think it's pretty hard to properly pronounce it as an english speaker as it contains the sound "-sch"
This site includes a properly pronounced version of "Asche"

God I'm so glad I live in Germany. I hate how Americans take a huge shit on every foreign word they see and call it the "American pronunciation" and just don't give a fuck.
I literally never heard "Yves Saint Laurent" pronounced any different than the french pronunciation. Although ironically the only people on this planet with comparable linguistic ignorance are probably the french.

We share a border with France and our cultures influenced each other.

Americans could say the same things about you when you try to say tortilla or whatever. You're not educated just because you know a company name from the ads they place in your country. Any actual foreign word and you'll fail like everyone else.

I live by the border with France, I'm pretty used to listening to it and even the way they pronounce stuff and some of those don't sound anything like it.

Yves would be something like Eeves.

I learnt it in school when I grew up but honestly the best way to learn anything is to just expose yourself to it as much as possible, do a basic course online and then just watch some french tv, read a french book, etc. reading it is much easier than speaking it
