    Hi,

    you cannot just pronounce the "ã", it is always in combination with the "o", so "ão" is 1 sound.

    It sounds like "aoow".

    Does this help you?

    Here's an easy song to listen to the sound "ã" in words like "não", "coração", "proteção", "vilão".
    The singer sings slowly and you will notice this sound.
