Hello Hossein!

 

There's a website which I'm sure you will love:

http://www.forvo.com/

 

It provides thousands and thousands of words pronounced by native speakers so you can hear different accents!

 

I hope it'll help :)

For most speakers, the "t" is silent, i.e. not pronounced. In some parts of the US, the word is prnounced as /ɔfn̩/, and in other parts as /ɑfn̩/.
