We all know how to pronounce the regular words seen in class, and those we don’t know how to, can be easily found in a dictionary. But there are some words, like proper names that are difficult to pronounce and when we don’t know how, the only way to find out is asking a native speaker.

Today I’ve discovered an article in the BBC news website that explains how some desginer’s names are pronounced: Balenciaga, Miu Miu, or Louis Vuitton among others, won’t be a mystery for you from now on.

What do you do to find out the pronunciation of words you don’t know? Please leave your answer in the comments section.
