    Some of the online English dictionaries have an audio icon that you can click on for pronunciation. For example: m-w.com

    This sound / ŋ/is called 'eng'
    It's one of the three nasal consonants of English - m, n, / ŋ/
    The sound of any of these is immediately stopped when you pinch your nose.
    m is stopped at the lips.
    n is stopped by the front of the tongue against the alveolar ridge.
    ng is stopped by the back of tongue against the soft palate.

    So if you can make a sound by raising the very back of your tongue such that the sound stops when you pinch your nose, then it's close being an / ŋ/
