I don't know how to pronounce the letter of "W" correctly. In my country, I always hear people say "Dub Bee U".....but I checked some British dictionaries and the internet, they said the correct pronunication is "Double U"....Recently I checked one American Dictionary, the pronunication is similar to my country "Dub Be U", can any native speaker tell me how to pronounce "W" correctly?
doubl|e ˈdʌb ə l
U, u juː (= you)
Webster's and I don't hear "doubee'u". Sorry. What you're hearing appears to be a variant.
What's the link to your UK dictionary?
Click on and listen the following link: Do you think the guy say "Dub bee u"?
