It should be pronounced Ca-ri-hwe-la

That's the easiest way to do it - it's not "weya" as that is reserved for words with a double "l" as in Estrella - Estreya :)

Hey dina, no apology needed, we're all fun people here :)

Not sure who you are hearing it from, not the Spanish i doubt.... however they do speak very quickly... If you want to learn how to speak even the basic of phrases then it's worth getting a little book... learning how to pronounce the letters is the 1st step then the vocab then constructing sentences... I'm not the brightest spark in the fire but can speak every day Spanish well.

Good luck, and they do appreciate it when people do at least try to converse.
