[spelling en uitspraak]
How do you pronounce 'gezellig'? What is the difference between 'eu' and 'ui'? How do you write...? You can use the phonetic keyboard if you are familiar with phonetic symbols.

I was wondering if any of you guys could point me in the direction of a website or some kind of resource that explains the pronunciation of Dutch diphthongs. I know the 2 letter ones like eu,ui and au, but i have no clue on how to pronounce the 3 letter ones like nieuw, blauw and aai.
Would be nice to have a complete list of all the diphthongs.

Thanks in advance
