    How do you pronounce Alex?

    I saw pronunciation written as ah-lex, ah-leks, ah-lix, al-ix?

    What is the sound of ah? Does it sounds like Air?

    Does Alex sound like the first part of apple? and the first part of Lexus, or second part or relax?


    Thanks

    There are 3 different Chinese 8.22min, 8.40min and 3.15min pronouncing the word Alex in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gBHAltQTQI#t=8m21s, does it sounds the same as what you would pronounce Alex?

    Just wanted to check if their pronunciation is same as westerners. Thanks
