For learning: Chinese (Mandarin)

    Try saying "new" but it is accented, then say "arrrghh", that first part "arrrrr" say it as if it were a question and there you have it!

    nǚ ér

    two syllables: nǚ-ér

    nv sounds like ni+u in french. Anyway, the u makes the /y/ sound.
    er is hard to find in other languages. Eh, you'd better watch some videos.
